Soooo many adds
by bdjdhbdhxhsbxjsbx on 2019/02/17 15:42
Ok so I don’t know if it’s just me but they let you play a quarter of the song then they don’t let you play any more until you watch an add
It charged me $74.34...
by ZayaMarie on 2019/02/17 14:29
The app has been charging me $10.62 a WEEK since February and I didn’t find out until today it has been such a pain to try to get refunds for the $9.99 subscription I have been paying for but never used because I didn’t know about it. I don’t ever remember downloading the app and playing it I’ve just had it on my phone... but now I’m definitely going to delete it after this.
Tons of Smule ads on VIP account?!
by Tired-but-happy eyes on 2019/02/17 08:53
Just wanted to add my voice to the other recent reviews (in hope things will change very soon; otherwise I’m not renewing my yearly VIP subscription when it comes due in a month...) These annoying ads for other Smule apps show up every couple of minutes, between every song I play, even though I pay around $40 a year for VIP Access. There are other irritating aspects of this app: other users’ songs that you buy often disappear from the list of songs you own (which is a great problem especially for non-VIP players who have to earn in-game coins for each song they buy); also, if you search for a particular song, you will generally get a huge list of options for the same title - a couple of them may be good arrangements from Smule or some very talented fellow users (or copied from sheet music), but most seem to be from other users who have claimed these other arrangements (stealing the credit from those who actually did the work) and/or don’t even have that song when you click on it, so you have to wade through a lot of stuff each time. Despite these problems, the fun and exhilaration of being able to play all sorts of songs right away, without the hours of practicing each one would take me on an actual piano, made the VIP Access Pass well worth it for me until now. However, these ads are like a long, loud burp in the ear and ruin the relaxation I used to get in this app. Please remove these ads from VIP passes and lessen or remove them for free players to make Magic Piano enjoyable again - for the sake of your customers and the success of your product.
It’s a good app, but not enough free songs.
by CiusAJR on 2019/02/16 21:54
Here should be better free songs. You either have to wait until you can add up 25 smoolas or be a VIP and I’m 12, I can’t pay to be a VIP or to get more smoolas so I cant play my favorite songs (especially by marshmello) so it’s really aggravating.
Stupid nazis with the big gway
by Master Weeb on 2019/02/16 16:49
Took all my songs that I paid good money for now I just wasted 400 Smula I’m gonna pre!!!
I hate it!!!!
by Murph.MB on 2019/02/16 14:06
It always told me to go fast then to go slow. Make up your mind!! I was always angry so this is why I wouldn’t get it. Plz listen to my advice and don’t get it!!!
Nice
by OneRandomAsian on 2019/02/16 08:33
Love the songs. But, could use a few less ads.
Terrible
by Some player of the game on 2019/02/16 04:45
This game stole my money and I’ve asked for it back it took over 3 dollars after I said I didn’t want the weekly subscription then since I had money in my iTunes account it just took it and I’m asking for it back it’s 3 dollars Smule it won’t hurt your profit
I ❤️ this game!!
by B1245hi on 2019/02/16 03:39
I love this game every kind of song for everyone, but I unfortunately cannot progress anymore as there are no more levels. PLEASE ADD MORE LEVELS!!
More challenges!
by Mike19671967 on 2019/02/15 20:20
I’ve been playing this game for many years and love it soooo much! I just wish that there were more challenges and more was to compete against other players! The daily challenge is a super fun way to see where you rank but I just want more of that!!!! Much love for this game though!
So many ads and the four fingers
by Chozopriest on 2019/02/15 20:17
Their is so many ads and when I try to play the four finger notes it just pauses what’s up with that
Smule
by Colsaw2.0 on 2019/02/15 19:58
I’m just disappointed.
I love it but the adds
by USA000 on 2019/02/15 19:16
I love the game I have it on my phone and iPad.but there are so many adds and it takes soo long to level up.but I flipping love the game so I give it five stars 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Can’t even record voices
by dedmemesrlife on 2019/02/15 19:08
So I am a major fan of imagine dragons but they can’t even record a voice for all the ads it is is horrible but there is a way to get around the ads just put your iPhone or iPad on airplane mode
Magic piano
by Butthead22999 on 2019/02/15 06:30
I didn’t even delete the app and it got rid of all my songs...
More credit
by FREE MINECRAFT MAPS on 2019/02/15 04:38
On the add you show soooo many songs to play but in real life it takes you like, 1 year to get 2 songs
Frustrating glitch
by smickmonkey on 2019/02/15 02:19
Almost every song I play on hard mode results in the song pausing every time I have to use 4 fingers, this is very frustrating and even tho the song continues when you hit play there is a coupe second window that you cannot press keys so I end up missing a lot of notes, this needs to be fixed, other than that the game is fun expect the constant adds
What the heck?
by 🐉✨✨APPSTAR✨✨🐉 on 2019/02/15 00:37
As usual I went to play my game every day in piano. I checked my songs and they weren’t there. What the flip happened to them?!?! That was not cool at all 😡 😡. I worked long and hard for them and they were favorites, I want you to fix that. And can you make the key typing easier?? I mean it’s really complicated to type and pay attention to the notes at the same time. Fix these please as soon as possible!! Thank you
To fast Too HARD
by shhdbdjdjdhid on 2019/02/15 00:10
How can you guys play this game it is hard and it does not have fun songs
Whhhhhhhhhyyyyyyyy
by 🐵🐶⚽️ on 2019/02/14 23:09
Ads are being the death of me ☠️
Impossible to use without paying
by Milky Way Girl on 2019/02/14 21:13
In between every song there is an extremely long advertisement without a pro account, preceded with the condescending message “Your free content will be available after this message!” The game itself is unenjoyable. New songs are already locked by the VIP account, so why add advertisements that actually damage game quality? I was willing to watch as many advertisements for earning coins but in the middle of gameplay is unacceptable. Since playing this game from the first time I had access to an iOS device, I am leaving it behind forever unhappily. Goodbye.
Constant Ads! So Annoying!
by TXGirl59 on 2019/02/14 08:23
This use to be so much fun and one of my most played games/apps. Then they began to put an ad after every single song or choice. Even if you’ve purchased the song, it still puts the ads up constantly after and before every single song. Took the fun right out of the app. I rarely play anymore.
Help
by kswagzill on 2019/02/14 05:18
I want my money Back. I accidentally clicked restore my vip when I wanted to cancel!! Please help me
It’s annoying
by GeneralMeowMeow on 2019/02/14 00:23
Kay so I play this game to get a feel for new songs but nearly every time I go to play a four chord the menus pulls up and interrupts my song. It’s really annoying and it makes the game hard to enjoy
Still get adds with VIP pass!!!
by Kvedvulf on 2019/02/13 00:08
So... Long story short, I have played magic keyboard for years on many different devices and os's. Back in the day the game was difficult, required a lot of effort and it was super fun. I just got a new device and decided to get this app one more time to try it out. I noticed quickly that the old songs I used to play are gone, there are less free options and getting smule coins is a lot harder and the app was a money grab. And ads, lots of ads that take away the quality of the game. I wanted to see if the app was any good in the VIP section so I got a one time VIP pass hoping the old game was there, that I know and enjoyed. The songs I miss playing are still gone, and worst of all I got ads in the same frequency as VIP as I did prior to being VIP. The pass isn't worth it! The game is dead!
So. Many. Ads.
by jellieskeeper on 2019/02/12 23:05
Ok, let me start with the positives. This app can be really fun. I enjoyed playing the songs they have but, unfortunately, when I started playing the songs today just like I used to before, there were freaking adds every time I pushed a button, literally. I press on a song, there is an add. I finish a song, there is an add. I repeat a song, there is an add. Please take away some of the adds because there is just so many. I really don’t mind some adds, but not every time I try to do anything. So plz decrease them.
What was fun is now annoying.
by SentientScarf on 2019/02/12 22:16
There’s been reviews saying the same problems I’m about to give. No responses from the makers either, and no problems have been solved. Ads. Way too many. Like, seriously, if you want your money than stop with the ads and give more promotions to those who pay. Every time I click on something there’s an ad. Finish level? Ad. Start level? Ad. Review a composer? Ad. Stop. With. The. Ads. You’re suffocating us. There’s not enough reward for leveling up. Wow, one coin and a song I won’t like after the 3rd time playing it. Maybe give more the more you level up or something. Songs are 25 coins AT LEAST. That means you’ll have to level up and watch videos endlessly to buy ONE song. Free songs? Yeah, wow, great, but I’d enjoy getting them more if there were MORE OPTIONS and LESS ADS. Again, there’s been no developer responses on hardly any reviews, if they’ve responded at all; so I’m going to assume they only care for money and wasting other people’s time, not their users.
Smoola
by Prim E. on 2019/02/12 21:22
My coins/smoola is stuck at 17. It’s really annoying cause I watched about 6 of the free adds which should have given me 30 smoola, but it’s just stuck at 17. Also the adds are incredibly annoying and so long. I had this app about 7 years ago and it was better back then without all the ads.
They just won’t listen.
by CaraH628 on 2019/02/12 17:17
Okay, so I just had a peaceful few days of not having ads after every song, and now they’re back! -_- ugh (This is the review I wrote before) So I have known about this app since I was around 7 or 8 about a year after it came out. I remember back then that there were very few ads, and I just loved playing my favorite songs for hours! Now that has changed. I love the idea of being able to play a piano on your phone, but not when there’s ads after every single song you play. Not to mention that the piano is so quiet compared to the ads that if I have earbuds in, the ad’s music literally kills my ears! The daily challenge scores are most likely chosen randomly based on what I’ve seen, and that’s really disappointing. Also if there’s a long pause in a song, the notes will come down way faster than they’re supposed to (and you’ll lose your point streak if you wait). Oh yeah, and why is almost every song VIP? Why would someone pay $7.99 a week or whatever to play the piano on their phone? So that’s my rant, there’s probably more to complain about that I haven’t thought of.
A bug
by Gfdghfdhb on 2019/02/12 16:38
A bad bug happened... it’s where it keeps putting up the menu when I’m playing faded.
Scammed
by Ax3 God on 2019/02/12 14:12
So I may just be stupid but this app has cost me over $160 without me knowing I signed up for that 7 day trial to play all the songs for a little bit I did and I ended up deleting the game before the trial was over and not to my knowledge it just kept charging me after that and I just can’t figure out how to cancel this subscription I suspect it’s cost me like $200 or more without my knowledge so I really suggest you just don’t waste your time as many of the songs require you to pay for the subscription to play them anyways
Decent but..
by Ahlexus99 on 2019/02/12 07:53
Decent game. Obviously marketed to people of all ages. I’m 18 and enjoy it. My only problem is that I cannot play 3 finger notes? It simply does not register. Can’t use 1 hand, can’t use both. 2 finger notes and 4 finger notes work perfectly. 3? Nope. Please try to fix this or have a calibration setting we can use.
Used to love this game
by AJaxRiley98 on 2019/02/12 07:03
It used to be great had a decent amount of free songs now all the free ones aren’t even in key and there is an ad before and after EVERY single song. Absolutely horrible. I get you need ads for free games but that’s ridiculous.
To many ads
by 3milyism3 on 2019/02/12 04:18
I really enjoy this game and everything but after ending a song and after claiming items you have to sit through so many ads which just makes the game unfun
200,000 stars!
by APPLE!!!!!!!! on 2019/02/12 02:22
This game gives me excitement for the daily challenge ever day and I love it! And I love that they have all my favorite songs on there! My sincere opinion, -apple user-
ZERO STARS STEALING MY MONEY
by Thatgrungewaffle on 2019/02/12 00:00
these crazy people trying to steal $7.99 out my debit card EVERY WEEK. And I deleted the app a long time ago. I can’t even get a refund DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS SCAM APP. They will take money out your card without your permission.
It used to be a good game
by CoolKat8088756 on 2019/02/11 23:53
Magic Piano used to be a good game. In the older versions it was a nice game, but then it started to become worse and worse. When I was playing I had to press the exact dot(s) that was supposed to be played, which made it way more had for me to enjoy it without getting angry. Also it keeps trying to charge me and I get that they have to make money some how, but the whole game shouldn’t be based on paying for something you don’t need. When really it should be based on how much people enjoy it.
DO NOT GET ITS A RIPOFF
by dontgetdisapp on 2019/02/11 17:29
Take this app off here jus giving away ppl money without them knowing do not get
It WONT stop PAUSING
by I won't tell you stalkers on 2019/02/10 07:02
The app is great, but I have two main things. First of all, every single time I have to play a four finger note, it will pause the song and I will have to hit resume OVER AND OVER. I don’t know what’s going on but i have been avoiding hard songs because us continually have to hit resume. Second, how do you compose your own song? If you have to be a VIP I think that’s dumb because people who don’t pay for the app already have only half the songs on the app. Besides that the app is good overall, but it’s really frustrating sometimes.
Too glitchy
by iolani5699 on 2019/02/10 02:16
Almost every time I use four fingers it goes to the pause button
It is the worst
by animallover108 on 2019/02/09 23:12
In the middle of a song it won’t stop pausing and it is non stop all it is is for money I do not think it is worth getting
The song DEMONS!
by Demons is the best! on 2019/02/09 21:40
I love that song alot! I always, or sometimes I hear it pn gacha videos.It’s on youtube you can watch Nessa Duck, or if you some of the videos.I am a little kid.I might be a little to young for this app.🙄😬🥴😶🥺. Well ummmmmmmmm........... I like this app a lot because it’I like this app a lot You can play all different songs and one of my favorites is sorry not sorry and Demons those are my two Favorite songs. Don’t judge me because I am a little kid!? I like playing it so yeah so you can watch it on gacha studios and it is the best. I almost like play um All of it! So people who don’t know I know this app just just rate it with five stars becauseIt is the best app in the whole wide world so go on go to the App Store and buy magic piano!!
Used to be great
by kittythugwonder on 2019/02/09 01:15
An ad for their other games after every song is why I canceled my subscription. They just got lazy with this app. The users now make the songs so now all you have are watered down top 40 over and over. Their own ads crash their own game
Menu pops up when I press with 4 fingers?
by The Reviewing Anymous on 2019/02/07 23:11
So I’m playing one of my favorite songs, and I decide to play hard mode. You know, where you have to tap with 4 fingers to actually play the song? So I start playing the song, but when I tap the orange dots with my fingers, the menu pops up, the one with the “Menu,” “Return to Songbook,” etc. I shrug it off, see it as a small glitch, but I do it again and it does the same thing. I think, “that’s weird,” but I keep going. I get done with a quarter of it before I think something’s wrong. I restart the song and it still does it. I look in settings and there’s nothing I can do about it. I try it one more time and have to resist throwing my iPad across the room because the menu pops up, interrupting my song. Please fix this.
Charging me for app when I no longer have it installed!
by bcarrett on 2019/02/07 18:22
This app is a fraud and stealing money from the people that download it!!! DO NOT DOWNLOAD
fix some stuff
by Natarthegreatar on 2019/02/06 17:44
this game was one of my all-time favorites when i was younger, but now it’s extremely frustrating. i am receiving an unskipable ad after every single song i’m playing, which is excessive and annoying, especially considering i’ve had to watch ads to get these songs in the first place. another problem i’m having is watching videos just stopped giving me smoola. i have watched so many videos and yet my coin count is still stuck at 21. this is frustrating because you guys are making money off ads that i’m CHOOSING to watch for a reward that i am not receiving. it’s a scam and it’s ridiculous. you’ll get your 5 stars back when you cut down the ridiculous ads and give me the money that i earned.
ONE STAR
by Iliketycoons on 2019/02/06 01:28
I hate it. People if you like watching ads come here! I have seen the same advertisement.. GOD KNOWS HOW MANY TIMES! It says this content will be free after this short message. Then we watch that play the game for a minute and a half and BOOM! Another ad. Either give us an ad free version and have us pay for like maybe $2. Stop with the ads. You should already have enough money with the VIP. That’s already expensive enough. Deleted!
Only one problem
by Chance12345 on 2019/02/05 22:26
So I have recently downloaded this game because it seemed like a cool app. I love playing the songs and really enjoy the music. However...I do NOT enjoy having to watch an ad every...single...time I play a song. Every time I finish a song, it gives me an add. It even sometimes gives me an ad before the song as well! I feel that some of the songs that you can buy with coins are too expensive. It takes a huge amount of upgrading and achievements to earn a mere 25 coins for a song you might play twice. I feel that this app could have some improvements, but overall I would give it a good rating.
STOP PLAYING ADS AFTER EVERY SONG
by Slither Enthusiast on 2019/02/05 10:28
- or at least give us the option to purchase the app ad-free. This is so irritating, that I stopped playing altogether over a year ago. I re-downloaded the app recently to play again, only to find that it still plays ads after every. Single. Song. So happy to find nothing’s changed the past year. I’ll be back next year and hopefully there will be less ads or the creators will at least have the decency to give us an ad free version for a one time payment low cost (like 3 bucks or something, I mean common they’re already charging ridiculous prices to be a VIP member- don’t even get me started on being a VIP member, that’s another disaster) Point is: loved this app, was one of the best... until they decided to play ads after every song. Such a waste of a beautiful app. Fix it while you still can and have a decent amount of people downloading.
Too many adds
by dirtycowboy6969 on 2019/02/05 06:59
Ok... I get you have to make your money but I get an add every single time I blink, and it has seriously changed my opinion on your app.
Resume Or Exit Keeps Popping Up
by Trezzo1 on 2019/02/04 21:15
I love this app, and I love playing it on my new iPad. But there’s just one problem. Every time I go to the highest difficulty (hard) every time I click the dots it wants you to click with four fingers, the whole game pauses, thinking I’m resuming the game, when in reality I’m just trying to play on it. This can get really annoying and frustrating and should be fixed. Thanks!!
Stop
by Kukki417 on 2019/02/04 20:03
Stop trying to charge me 25.48 every month. I deleted this app along time ago and I never signed up for anything to be charged so for the 5th time I asked stop charging me!!!!!
Good but a few bugs
by CreatorMystic on 2019/02/04 18:10
There is currently a bug where free watching Ads for free Smule coins, They never show up, I watched at least 10 ads today and got 0 smule, very annoyed at this
Annoying
by Fivkfdkxovnd on 2019/02/04 16:56
This game used to be super fun. I deleted it and then redownloaded it recently, and the ads are terrible. After every song I play and before every song I play, there’s an ad. You’ve become money hungry and it’s sick. Please stop. The ads are insanely unnecessary.
Careful with subscription!
by Dsolori25 on 2019/02/04 16:04
It’s a good game very addicting but when I signed up for the 7 day free trail it said it would charge me after it was done, that was not a problem and after the trail was done I kept noticing 10 dollars where being deducted off my account EVERY WEEK and when I go to cancel they have two options that are the same exact thing for the same amount of time but more expensive it’s stupid the lost all my confidence in their games >:(
Disappointed
by KatieNichole on 2019/02/04 07:36
I don’t usually leave reviews but man do I want to for this one. I used to play this religiously. I got busy and didn’t have time to play it much. I even paid for a subscription. I recently saw an ad for it and decided I’d download it again. Right away it gave me an offer for a week trial which is subscribed to. I hadnt logged in yet since I didnt realize I needed to. I played a few songs (maybe close to 5 or 6) before I logged in, which I never should’ve done in the first place. First thing I realized was that I had to pay for them using those smule coin things, or pay for a subscription to play a song I had just played without logging in. Why was I able to play it before logging in, but once an account is created I had to pay for it? That makes ZERO sense to me. Not only that, but I cant even play a song that I had payed for in the past since it’s in MY SONGS. I had to pay for a trial in order to play it. WHY?! Also, if I’m paying for a subscription why do I have to watch an ad to play a free song? Beats me....
Terrible
by Jimmybonesaw🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻 on 2019/02/03 23:30
I have no idea why you make a good game like this and have tons of ads and you make players who want to actually property use the app pay for expensive subscriptions that are not needed whatsoever.... pretty desperate for money huh?
DONT GET IT
by Nuimo on 2019/02/03 17:46
I think it is very fun until now that everything smule related now takes a VIP membership. I think it is a terrible idea of making people pay $7.99 per week. My idea is just make people pay to get the app but then every song is free or make it still free but just add lots of adds. But until then I’m never getting anything that includes the name smule ever again.
Awesome
by Baller B7769 on 2019/02/03 17:38
There are so m any songs to play and Harry Potter is my fave but there are so many adds and you have to pay money for some of the songs but i love how you put Disney songs in there I’ve never never seen Harry Potter but i love the book thank you for putting Harry Potter in you app thanks
Not Rewarding
by Mytatgg on 2019/02/03 03:22
Its way too freaking easy to get three stars. I just tapped away until the song was over and I got a little over a star.
Okay, but a lot of things wrong
by HelloHelloHelloHiHiHi :) on 2019/02/03 01:42
First of all, the ads are super annoying, every ten seconds. I always watch like 15 ads to get coins but they never actually give me the coins. I closed down the app, refreshed it, still nothing. They're just trying to get you to buy it with money. The tapjoy "tasks" or whatwver they call them now never reward you either. Awesome idea, crappy execution.
Scam
by bigby06 on 2019/02/03 00:51
I can’t find anyway to unsubscribe from this ap and they repeatedly try to charge my card at least once a week after I locked it very disappointed
Make the subscription a one time thing.
by Jekada01 on 2019/02/03 00:19
I love this app but... I HATE the ads. I have leveled up as far as I can go. You said you were going to add new levels years ago but still have not. I will not pay 40 bucks for a yearly subscription but I would pay it as a one time payment.
Too many ads
by Tiny Swirl on 2019/02/02 19:22
Look I loved this game but like the title stated it’s too many ads after every single frickin song an ad pops up about some coloring app or a house cleaning game and it’s very frustrating because I don’t want ads. Another thing all the popular songs have vip not everyone has vip smule stop putting everything in vip and get rid of some of the ads I’m seriously thinking of getting rid of the app and all other smule apps on my phone.
Switch and bait

Was playing a free song I really enjoyed and the next time I played that song cost money:( plz change!
Too many ads, great app
by jrl6281989 on 2019/02/02 05:19
Used to love this app until you had to watch an ad after every single song. Wouldn’t be so bad if they weren’t 15 second ads that usually crash. Have had this app for at least 5 years and only keep it in case the ads stop.
Cannot play on hard
by Drue J on 2019/02/02 02:02
Almost every time you hit four notes it brings up the menu and makes the game unplayable
It’s ok..
by Liv The Savage on 2019/02/01 22:54
When you are playing the songs it’s really fun but after ever song is a 30 second add. And if you watch a video to get coins, half the time they don’t give you any coins

The app is fun and has a lot of songs to pick from but I tried to get free Smoola’s by watching ads. I had 46 and I watched well over 10 ads yet for some reason I can’t get to 50.
Such a scam
by Letsgoeataburher on 2019/02/01 17:23
Don’t get this app unless you wanna pay money for songs...
Giving me trouble
by boi9384728293 on 2019/02/01 11:47
Every time I put on hard mode every time a four note pops up and I do it the stupid menu screen comes up it is really making me peeved if you could fix that nonsense I will change this to a five but other wise good game 👍 👎
Too many ads

It said I was buying a free week trial tricked me into buying a weeks sub riot ion for $9.99. Do not do this.
Not worth the price
by Claudsyi on 2019/01/30 23:17
I initially got it for the trial but it was my bad that I never canceled it in time. But even then, seriously? $9.99 for just one week of access?
DragonCity told me to buy it

Hello this is dumb because they told me to do this for 245 gems and I don’t have it yet this is some bull crap
Ads
by manumons on 2019/01/30 18:56
Had this game back in high school and got addicted. Wanted to play it again and wow the ads just take away from everything... game developers please look into giving the people you made the game for a good experience. Don’t focus the guys paying you go force people to watch what they’re selling. You’ve lost stars since last time I remember... and the reviews use to be quite nice.
Ads
by Br7aqc on 2019/01/30 13:02
Hi, the eight hour ad for the stupid cleaning game is insufferable, could you s-can that bulls-? For f-ing realsies, why the f- do we need to watch an entire round of that stupid s-?
Can’t play any songs!

Too many ads.
by Jp962614 on 2019/01/29 20:58
I have had this app since it first came out. I’ve seen it change and transform. And I figured let’s get back and play because I really really enjoyed the game. And I realized why I haven’t played it in a while. After every song. There is an ad. The only reason I haven’t deleted it is because I had progressed so far in the game. It no longer is for the consumer. But I’m sure they’re struggling for money since no one plays it anymore and that’s why there are so many ads.

Ruined!
by erindanne on 2019/01/26 18:32
What did you guys do to this app?? First of all, you erased everyone’s songs and progress they’d saved and earned for years, then you made it so they can’t play anything without listening to a loud obnoxious ad between everyone song. I can’t stand to be on this app for longer than a single song now. It used to be so much fun.
Problem
by r@t1ngs&r3v13w5 on 2019/01/26 18:04
When ever I want to use 4 fingers in hard mode it immediately goes to the menu, which then makes me lose points for “not playing fast enough”
Issues with 3 finger touch
by wolf2244 on 2019/01/26 10:40
Love this game and used to play it all the time. I downloaded it again recently and was very disappointed to discover that the game isn’t registering when I am using three fingers to hit the notes. It has no problem distinguishing one finger, two finger, and four finger touches. Just three. But unfortunately this makes playing nearly impossible.
I used to love it but now I hate it
by lilly6591 on 2019/01/25 21:18
Ok let’s get this straight there are to many ads for the incredibly stupid game and even when u have the game u still get like 100 game ads
Simolia and songs
by ianndjcncnud on 2019/01/25 12:32
Get rid of the simolaia coins or if you get the song male sure that you can do it as many times as you like
Too many ads
by Codeguru413 on 2019/01/25 03:11
I’m with everyone else. I used to love this app and would have rated it 5 stars a few years ago. But now, an ad after every song? Ridiculous. I was fine with watching ads to get smule, but now, why bother since you’re just going to show me ads anyway?
4 note glitch
by 72947279492764 on 2019/01/24 22:20
I would be happy to rate this game 4 stars or possibly even more if I were able to play any hard mode song without it pausing continuously. Nearly every time I am met with a red chord the game freezes and it drops my 4x multiplier.
The composer doesn’t work
by rsoupb🙃 on 2019/01/24 21:38
I’ve had this app for three years, not really any problems. But now, the composer is giving me errors. It used to be fun, but if I’m the only one with the error it’s still not fun because that still means another problem; they don’t have the songs I like, which is very disappointing. So, in conclusion, if you like a lot of rap song, DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME GETTING THIS APP!!
Good game but some issues
by joyfullisa on 2019/01/24 01:12
I can’t get smoola in some ads that’s why this game kindasucks plz read this message also sometimes we can’t get ads so plz change that plz plz plz change these things my sis rlly loves playing this game and she wants those things to be changed plz read this message
I nearly broke my phone because of this game
by kh4153 on 2019/01/23 12:48
Well, this app isn't the best and most relaxing as they say it is. It's not for other people, aka me, with anger issues, I already have a crappy phone and I don't want to break my phone because this device has is MY SOUL. Also, if anyone who's saying 'Why don't you scream in a pillow?' It's not that easy, screaming in a pillow is useless; that just makes me more mad. Apart from me, the ads are just ridiculously annoying and awful, they keep giving me the same two ads, Poly Sphere and that weird dice-dominó app. I actually considered getting Poly Sphere, but this app ruined my chances Also, half of the songs cost those little money things tokens which TAKE FOREVER to get, I have to play 25 levels to get a token if I can remember. I mean for the pros the app does get me excited when I'm about to play a song, eh, that's it.
I love this app, BUT
by Karebear852k3 on 2019/01/22 21:21
There is a MAJOR glitch with the SingJam version of songs that either the timing of the notes are off, or it doesn’t recognize when you DO hit them right, so it drops your score from 4x/perfect. Extremely frustrating
Fun but...
by bluoceann on 2019/01/22 20:08
This game is so expensive. They give you a couple songs for free to try out. Advertisement videos are played before and after the free song which gets old fast. Most of the free songs given are composed by other app users. For full “VIP” access it’s $20/month. Really? Ouch. I’m not seeing the value here. Game is fun but not at that price.
Still good but things need to change
by #DA BOS5# on 2019/01/22 04:03
Nothing has really changed in the app ever since it released. Thankfully at the time it was good enough to sustain itself to this day and remain a pretty popular app. I feel like however in order to stay relevant there needs to be a lot of notable changes that are for the better. The interface needs an update because, it works but I’m tired of seeing it constantly over 7 years that I’ve had the app. Another that I am irritated with is that the screen size is not optimized for iPhone XR (which is what I have) so the whole screen isn’t filled and it makes the rest of the screen feel useless. Plus the quality of the Piano may have sounded good 7 years ago but today... it sounds terrible. Sound still comes out but it doesn’t have any rich quality that I’m looking for.
So many ads
by Bellibuttins:) on 2019/01/22 03:43
I’ve had this app on my phone for years. Every iteration of iPhone gets it, I even had it on my Android when I switched for two years to them. But within the last couple of years, the amount of ads have become absolutely unbearable. I barely play it anymore and can’t stand how difficult it is to get smoola without playing the same songs over and over or trying to beat impossible achievements. It’s exhausting to be assaulted by loud advertisements immediately after playing calm, classical music. Please do something about this without people having to pay fees to get rid of them. Y’all know you can do better.
Issues
by MithicalWolf79 on 2019/01/22 01:56
When I hit the 4 note it pauses the game
Half and Half
by BraveGirl13 on 2019/01/22 01:44
I’ve had this app for a while, and I love playing the songs and everything but I’m right up there with everyone else. There’s an ad after almost every song, and recently when I’ve watched ads to get more coins, they stop halfway through and either keep going and not give me the coin or it crashes the whole app. (I wasted an hour doing this) Not to mention that songs I’ve downloaded that were free suddenly disappear a few days later and I have to buy them, even if I’ve already unlocked it. That’s pretty lame. It’s an overall awesome app when it actually works and you can play the songs, but I am NOT paying 99.00 just to play some music. It’s a ripoff and the ads are way too much. Wish it would all change back.
I used to love it...
by @miggysbiggestfan on 2017/12/01 21:09
So I've had this app probably since I was 15 when I first got my iPhone 6, and it was addicting up until now. Okay so last night every single song I have showed 3 stars next to each level of difficulty that I have played at, and just a few minutes ago when I went to open the app, ALL of my songs showed no stars highlighted, no scores, no nothing. Like I just bought them or composed them and haven't even started playing them yet. I am really angry. 😡😡 Also there are just too many ads. 👎🏻 Every ten seconds after I finish a song, a stupid ad pops up about some coloring book or food game and it's really annoying. 😤 Also I really hate how the majority of everyone's favorite songs nowadays can't be played unless you have a VIP membership accessibility. It's ridiculous. I feel that VIP membership to play a song on Magic Piano should be banned, because you know, there are not very many VIP members in the world. I'm seriously thinking about deleting this app from my phone for permanent. I've not only had to deal with the troubles I stated above, but I've also had to deal with the app freezing up, songs I compose that won't let me publish no matter what I do, and Daily Challenge songs taking decades to load and then refreshing the app only for it to crash every time I reopen it. It's getting really frustrating and I can't take it any longer. 🚫
Went downhill
by lencofam on 2017/12/11 05:07
I used to have this app as a very young child, and the only reason why I deleted it was because I got frustrated at its difficulty. Just recently, the game crossed my mind and I decided to re-download it and give it another go. Because I’ve gotten a lot better at video games over the years, the difficulty of the game was no longer a problem. There, were, however, new problems with the game that I didn’t expect to encounter. For starters, the game has WAY to many ads. I can’t play a single song, not even a short one like Happy Birthday, without being forced to watch a stupid, boring video that I don’t care about. I got this game because I remembered how fun it was, but it’s kind of hard to have fun when 90% of the game is just you watching ads for other games. Second of all, this game is basically begging you for money at this point. The fact that some of the songs are only available to VIP users is just stupid. Do they really expect us to spend actual money on a stupid piano game that we have on our phones? Besides from that, every achievement you can accomplish in the game (leveling up, getting new songs, etc.) can be bought with just a few bucks. The fact that literally everything in this game has been put up for sale is terrible. Well, that’s my review
$mule.. it’s all about the $$$
by Samiam1023 on 2018/04/13 00:43
I loved this game for a long time but over the last year or more the ads are ridiculous and every time before you start a song .. there’s an ad.. finish a song... another ad... select another song.. an ad.. and on and on. I paid for a one week trial and didn’t realize it continued charging me. I originally signed up for 7.99 a month only to find out a couple months later they were billing me 2.99 a week! Being able to compose songs was a cool idea until I finished a level and earned 200 coins... purchased a newer song for 75 coins that was nothing more than a few taps and that was it. I didn’t get the song I paid for and that’s happened many of times. When someone submits a composure I think someone at the company should review it first before putting it out there for people to waste their money. Lastly... I have maxed out on levels so all the songs I rack points up on are of no use since the app is now not even giving me credit so unless I want to pay for VIP I have no way to earn what little reward you get for completing a level. What started out as my absolute favorite game is now nothing more than a money sucker and it doesn’t appear that it’ll improve. Great game gone to the deleted aps of my account! They aren’t getting anymore of my money!
Horrible ads!
by Mefens on 2017/12/06 13:51
I’ve always enjoyed playing magic piano. Over the years, I’ve had a membership and at other times did not. Currently, I don’t feel I play it enough to justify paying. With that being said, I have noticed some things that make this app not very enjoyable. 1. It takes FOREVER to earn smule coins. Which makes the app not much fun because I feel like I get to play the same songs over and over again. Not cool and not challenging. 2. Under “my songs” I have a bunch of songs which I have either bought or had while having a membership. At this point without clicking on each one there is no way to tell if I’m able to play it or if I need more smule. Confusing. 3. This is the most annoying of all. The ads that I see (which I do feel there are too many of) are not ones that I wish for my kids to see. There are ones that show a doll that is getting beat up and bloodied and tells you you “kick it’s a**” and that this will “relieve your stress”, really?! Not the message I want to send. There are others I have seen that are similar, zombies I believe, and there is a lot of blood. I don’t expect or desire to see these ads, ever, yet alone, over and over again. That needs to be changed or I will have to delete this once great app.
Ads, ads, ads, and ads.
by truckload of ads on 2018/11/22 06:21
Jesus Christ where do I even begin? Ok well I’ve had this game for a few years now and I swear to god it’s never been this bad. I always exit a song just before it ends to avoid watching an ad, because they’re literally after EVERY song. Not to mention before AND after free songs, which to be fair there’s a lack of, but I’m not sure I could consider that a good thing either. I have a lot of songs, over 131. So explain to me why there’s only 131 songs in the “my songs” section? Anytime I buy a new song, it doesn’t get added to the list, a problem which just recently started happening to me. There’s no way I’m gonna look up a song every time I wanna play it when it’s supposed to be added to the list for the convenience of the player. THIS BUG NEEDS TO BE FIXED. I tried looking up the songs again, and playing them through again, even beating them on all difficulties, to try and see if it got them added to the list. And it did.... until I closed the app and reopened it that is. Did I also mention that there’s way too many ads? I did? Well the game will shove it in your face again. Something needs to be done, this app is no longer of good quality from the bugs and there’s too many ads, earning smule undeserved money, the company is solely based on greed now.
Fingers too big?
by Jen Reeves on 2017/09/25 23:10
So I've only had the app for a couple of hours and I signed up for the free seven day trial. I love the selection of songs, and I played a couple on easy mode and thought they were quite fun. But if I change the difficulty above easy, there are times when I'm asked to hit three notes at once. The two dots off to the right are so close together I can't hit them both at the same time. I put my two fingers together as tightly as possible and tap the screen and it's only registering that I'm hitting one of the dots. I don't have big hands, I'm a woman of average height and average weight so my fingers are not chubby or unusual in any way. I feel like I am missing something. Like there Nice to be an obvious solution then I'm just not noticing. Especially because I don't see anyone else complaining about this problem. Maybe there should be settings I can change to make the dots a little bit further apart so that my fingers can hit them, but I don't see anything like that anywhere. So I really like the song selection and I like the concept of the game and the sound is very nice, so I would give it a higher rating if I could actually Play it above easy. Until I figure out what's wrong and how to fix it this app is useless to me.
WHAT THE HECK SMULE
by I'm a Artist on 2018/04/19 02:09
So I get you guys are a big app now, and I have had Magic Piano since it first came out, years ago. I used it when there was only basic songs like Twinkle Twinkle little Star. I’ve kept it all these years, and never have I gotten so many ads. I have over 150 songs, do you know how many Ads I had to watch? Plus free songs. I also did TapJoy stuff, and never once got my Smula (should be almost 6800 since I did ones you actually had to pay for also) I’ve reported it and then was told it was “Lost” but it said I had done it. Of course I got a little mad. Yet, I still have the app. How am I re-payed? ADS AFTER EVERY SONG! I like to play the songs but it’s annoying when a ad comes in every two seconds. As before I can play to ad after I play then repeat. It’s used to be reasonable, 1 ad after every 3-4 songs. Sometimes 5 if you watched a Smula ad. Don’t you guys already have Millions just from all of your apps combined? You guys are getting greedy. Also the VIP thing. Why are all the good songs VIP? The daily challenges used to be VIP songs, which was cool. But now it’s songs you can go and buy. Tired of it smule. I’ll keep the game and I wish to have my 6800 Smula, but I’m not going to force it. And PLEASE KEEP THE ADS ON A DOWN LOW!
Terrible
by tifpow on 2018/03/21 05:36
This app has gotten worse and worse. There is very rarely any free content created. I have a large library of songs that I accumulated when the app had a bigger variety of free songs, but even I get bored of playing those. So, does that mean I buy a VIP membership? Of course not! It’s super overpriced! To put it into perspective, a year of VIP is $40 which is about as much as a good quality Nintendo DS game. Not only does the Nintendo DS game have more to offer (offense intended) you also get to play it forever. It’s one payment of $40, not $40 a year like Magic Piano. Who in their right mind would buy a VIP subscription to Magic Piano? So, that’s off the table. I should just play the songs I have and get over it right? Or maybe save up smoola to get more. First of all, smoola takes forever to earn. I’ve been playing this game on and off for years and I got enough smoola to buy one song ONCE. Not to mention I had accumulated a lot of smoola at a point (probably over 100) and I opened the app one day and it was gone! The only reason I gave this app any stars at all is because if you’re playing one of the few decent songs you can, it’s really really fun. But it’s a terrible app that begs for money from us and lost what made it so great.
Timing....too slow...???!
by lilpkrmnstr on 2018/04/30 04:47
I love this app, but the one thing I can't stand is when it tells me I'm being too slow.. but I'm trying to play the song the way it sounds.. And it always seems to want to rush me. I'd rather be able to play the song the way it feels in the way it sounds rather than having the app tell me I'm playing too slow. Messing up is one thing, but having a longer pause at the end of that set because you're playing it with feeling is another. I think that should be fixed. Make room for a real or with feeling pause. Also.. I LOVE the community section. However, I think people just messing around makes it hard to find the people who have actually created an amazing piece. That's frustrating. If you want the quality of the app, you pay for it. Have a passion for piano music, you pay for it. People who love it will pay for it. I would love to get rid of the “junk” on it... the songs people create that make no sense. They should have to be approved or something. Keep the crap out.
UUGGHH SO ANNOYING!! ADS?!?
by Pookeylookey on 2018/10/31 12:14
So many ads!! I know it helps the company, but there’s so much to were I get out of the game because of them. Don’t get me wrong, I love the game (kinda addicted) but I redownloaded the game the other day, and I don’t remember the game having so much ads. I mean cmon. I get on the app, ad, when I pick a song that I’ve already watched 40 million ads for, ANOTHER AD, and even when I get done playing a song..guess what, ANOTHER AD!!! cmon smule, where’s the game that I enjoyed without getting all these stupid ads. Plus, it’s like the same ads everyday. I’m okay with ads (because every game has them). Buttttt when they interrupt EVERY SINGLE TIME I PLAY, then I’m either gonna delete the game I love, or give y’all a review and hope y’all address and fix the problem. :) Yes, I understand y’all benefit from ads, but surely for how many people play yalls apps, and how many ads y’all have on a game in general, I think y’all are good on money. Please Please PlEaSe fix the PrObLeM!!!!! LOVE AND KIND, LAYTHEN!!! :) P.s- I love the game, and the games y’all produce. But, it’s basically all the stikin ads that I have to deal with just on this game. I hope y’all can fix this. Have a great day! :)
No longer worth my time; TRASH
by Niniroman on 2018/12/08 05:54
I never spend the time to review, however my disappointment in the evolution of this game pushed me to do so. I first played magic piano around 6-7 years ago and I absolutely loved it. There were plenty of accessible songs and I would earn a nice classical piece every time I leveled up. There were plenty of songs to choose from and I did not mind spending hard earned coins to gain popular songs like Mario’s theme song and Beethoven Sonatas. The amount of ads was reasonable and felt like an acceptable exchange for the playtime they provided. Now it is trash. As others have commented, there are ads before and after playing one song (most of the time). You get free songs for leveling up much less frequently and when you do they are not very desirable (I.e very short happy birthday). Even with all that ad watching, there are only 8 free songs, and most songs are for VIP members only. I loved this game for the classical music and there is barely access to any classical pieces for free anymore. I am extremely disappointed with the direction of this company. I do not recommend their products. And hope others will take notice and do the same. I hope they change for the better after seeing the many complaints here.
They just won’t listen.
by CaraH628 on 2019/02/12 17:17
Okay, so I just had a peaceful few days of not having ads after every song, and now they’re back! -_- ugh (This is the review I wrote before) So I have known about this app since I was around 7 or 8 about a year after it came out. I remember back then that there were very few ads, and I just loved playing my favorite songs for hours! Now that has changed. I love the idea of being able to play a piano on your phone, but not when there’s ads after every single song you play. Not to mention that the piano is so quiet compared to the ads that if I have earbuds in, the ad’s music literally kills my ears! The daily challenge scores are most likely chosen randomly based on what I’ve seen, and that’s really disappointing. Also if there’s a long pause in a song, the notes will come down way faster than they’re supposed to (and you’ll lose your point streak if you wait). Oh yeah, and why is almost every song VIP? Why would someone pay $7.99 a week or whatever to play the piano on their phone? So that’s my rant, there’s probably more to complain about that I haven’t thought of.
AD AND BUG/GLITCH INFESTED APP!!
by Alcrex0260 on 2017/11/15 03:31
Used to like the game but maybe if they added an instant replay feature pianist can see where they might have messed up, and also there’s a bug or glitch that makes the songs I purchased with smolda coins via search, the only songs that show up in the “my songs” section is the songs that the app created. It’s really annoying when I can’t play the songs I spent a long time watching ads to get. And also sometimes I sit through a 30-50 second ad and I don’t even get the coins for it, um..... WHATTTTT?!?!?!? I used to really like this game. I played it for hours without any ads and it was fun and enjoyable and all bugs were squashed, but now we have ads around every corner, bug nests everywhere and ads with sexual content, um excuse me but (no offense intended to Smule) who do you think you are?! It’s an app rated 4+ so there should be content that’s appropriate for 4+ aged people. UNACCEPTABLE!! How would you feel, developers of Smule, if your child was playing an app and encounters an ad containing sexual content? I would feel like a bad parent! And if more and more people feel the app makes them feel like bad parents, they’ll delete the app and you’ll loose money! Then what will you do? Just think about that.
Disappointing
by uwu 4 u on 2019/01/13 04:55
Ideally this would be a great app. It was fun for a bit but there is really not that much you can do without spending money. Smoola, their currency, is soooo hard to obtain. There are these achievements you can get but after the first few easy ones you realize that the rest are impossible to get. You have to play more songs to get the achievements that get you smoola, but to be able to play those songs you have to buy them with smoola. Either way you need smoola and the only way to get it is to buy it with real money. There are tons of ads just to play song that last only one or two minutes. Whenever I saved up enough smoola ( a rare occurrence) I was so happy because that means I could get a song. So over the course of the few years that I have had this app, I have been able to buy ONLY FOUR SONGS! (I don't use this app that often, maybe once a week or a bit more). I also wish there was a way to preview the songs before you buy them. For two out of my four purchased songs, I have been disappointed with the way they sound. This app would be so much better if you didn't have to spend so much money to enjoy it.
Great Game... but also some honesty
by lSIRsmokeALOTl on 2018/03/02 20:42
Alright, so I would like to start by stating that I absolutely love this game as a game, but I've come across some shady business practices from Smule considering their billing agreement. I did the one week trial, loved it and then paid for another. I decided I needed to not pay for the subscription for personal finance reasons, so I canceled my VIP membership. Low and behold they charged me for VIP the next week, so I removed PayPal from my payment methods on iTunes. Funny thing is, even after cancelling the subscription and removing PayPal as a payment method they continued to charge me for four more consecutive weeks. I had to claim fraudulent charges through my bank to get the payments to stop. I'm not sure if this was a mistake or shady business practices, but make sure you manually stop the recurring charges through your bank if you want to stop the VIP membership. That is honestly the only reason I gave this game three stars. If not for that singular incident I would definitely have rated it 5 stars. Great game! Love it! But I'm going to be uninstalling it after my experience.
Scam
by Greek American on 2018/07/19 03:07
I used to love this app, but now it’s just disappointing. I opened the app for the first time in about a year yesterday, and all of the thirty something songs I had ever purchased and played were gone. Even a song that I bought last night was gone by this morning. It’s pretty much impossible to get coins without purchasing them with real money, and I wasn’t going to spend that much time watching ads. Another horrible change that I’ve noticed is the increase in ads. A year ago, all of the songs in the free section used to actually be free. But now, you have to watch an ad before playing one. Even if you want to change the difficulty, you have to watch an ad. Ads never used to be apparent in the app unless you watched them for coins, but now they pop up after you play almost any song, even if you have actually purchased it. After reading a lot of reviews, I am positive that everything that is happening to me is not a unique glitch, and is probably a scam put into place by Smule so they can earn more money. Don’t waste your time trying to make good use of this app. It’s not worth it. There are plenty of other much better versions out there.
Time for a change!

I've had Smule for about three years now and have noticed major changes in the downward direction, sometimes I ask myself why do I still play....why because it is fun after you get through the extremely loud commercials. Some commercials can last as long as 30 seconds and they are now using commercials with sexual orientation and I heard the F word this week on a new commercial. I hope Smule doesn't think only adults use this app because I know several minors that use this. Usually you have to listen to two commercials before playing a song which is tiresome. As for the new composers feature I personally do not care for it because all it does is make about 20 songs of the same song and when you finally get a free song it'll give you a duplicated song that you already have, just made by someone else. it takes a long time sometimes to get a free song even when it asks you would you like a free song today?... and then they don't give you one! I will not pay an annual membership to play this game. Smule needs to get it together and make this app fun for everyone.
So. Many. Freaking. Ads.
by LittleNerdyElephant on 2018/01/11 01:03
Ugh, BEFORE and AFTER I play a song, I have to watch an ad. I can’t X out of it, because then I just close out of the app and lose my progress, and end up repeating what I tried and failed to do before. I give it three stars, mainly because it is a great app overall, with fun songs and options, xp points after every song you play that you save to level up, rewards, etc. I think it would be such a better game if there weren’t as many advertisements! Also, almost everything is too pricey. It is hard to get through the game without purchasing something. There are only eight free songs I know of, without being a VIP, and once you complete those, you kinda have to just replay them until you level up and get more smoola to buy a song. I think this game has potential, but please add in more free songs and lower the amount of ads I see, because honestly it is super annoying, and I want to delete it but I would lose all my progress. If you make these simple changes, my star rating will go up, and I guarantee others will too.
The glitch😤
by I❤️EDM on 2018/06/23 19:57
Overall I think this app is fun and I like that there’s a ton of songs to choose from. But I’m writing this review because of one problem in particular I’m having. When I play on the hard level, (using up to four fingers) often for some unknown reason it will keep pausing even though I do NOT hit the pause button. This happens a lot now (sometimes ten times a song...no exaggeration!) Also it’s started to glitch out right into other apps when I’m right in the middle of a song. It’s getting very annoying. Please fix this! (A month later) Something just popped up on my screen on how to make it stop pausing right in the middle so many times of every song. I did it and it worked. Thanks! I’ll bump it up to four stars now. I’d have a better chance of giving it five stars if there weren’t soooo many ads (An ad after every song you play and sometimes you’re required to watch an ad before you can even begin playing a song) and if the songs didn’t cost so much.
This is my favorite game in the whole world
by Wifey290 on 2018/01/13 08:16

AWESOMENESS, MOSTLY‼️‼️🎹🎼🎶🎵
by Sookie words and more on 2017/08/18 20:23
Magic Piano is SO fun but also SO too funny‼️‼️I'm reading reviews and SMH!! Many if not most of us are far from Bach or Mozart but Magic Piano gives us an opportunity to at least feel like we can actually play a piano!! Realistically, though, NOT!! Now I hear ya about these darn, often occurring, loud ads, they are quite troublesome but at least you can get smules but 1 is not equal to each ad in my opinion. Now granted I love it when I play a song and people in the same room can recognize and identify the song I'm actually trying to play!! I did learn much from reading the reviews in regards to options within the app. such as you can practice, pause, play songs people like us have composed vs. actual composers and so on so I think I can enjoy the experience even better. It's always a plus and boost to the old ego when you play well enough to to unlock more songs and level up!! Thumbs up for me👍🏼👌🏽😜👏🏼👏🏼🎹🎧🎤
Im so bitter
by Ɩıŋɖʂɛყ on 2018/08/02 04:03
I’m so incredibly disappointed in this app. I used to have it a long time ago and I loved it SO MUCH. it was so soothing and I would play it every night before I went to sleep. But that was on my old iPad, and now it’s incompatible with the app. I had never played it with my phone cause I thought the screen would be too play to play properly (I was right), so I never got it. Then I saw an ad for it and I thought “that would be fun to try again!” WRONG. I’m so mad. The first thing it’s greets me with is “you wanna but a membership that’s way overpriced?”. Then after that I tried to play a song and was bombarded with SO MANY ADS!! Also, I tried to play a song from the little mermaid that had the voice along with it, and it WAS NOT synced up at all!! I used to play the ones with the voice all the time, so I know how it works. I wasn’t doing it wrong. When did this app become such a sell out?!? Literally like 3/4th of the app is all ads. It’s completely ridiculous. I’m so disappointed and frustrated. I just wanted that soothing experience again. Listen Smule, you don’t need all this crap to sell your app. You’re just making people mad. Please give up back what we want.
Glitchy and too many ads
by luka / ルーカ on 2018/06/13 03:05
I’m not too sure if this has happened to anybody, but I’ve recently been going into the app only to find that the songs I’ve purchased are not appearing. Typically, the “My Songs” tab only showed the songs you’ve earned when you’ve leveled up, and took a few seconds to show the songs you’ve bought. Now the songs I’ve bought don’t show up at all, and if I want to play a certain song I have to look it up. Super annoying since I have the tendency to scroll and pass something I want to play without thinking about it first. On the other hand, the ads are just too much. After almost every song I play that has a difficulty (not going into the section where it says “Practice) an ad pops up. Having the ads when you are trying to earn Smoola without playing a song makes sense, but having it after every song played is just flat out tedious. Aside from the glitches and ads, the app is pretty fun to play around with. If it didn’t have these problems, I’d probably be on it more often, but the app is slowly being ruined for me.
Helpful ideas!!!!
by JHONOSAURUS REX on 2018/05/16 01:29
I think that this is a very fun and creative app, but only when people stop copying the same song from each other. The sad thing is that they aren’t even the right song. For example, I wanted to play the song “Every time we Touch” by cascada and when I search it up, I see that all of the songs say cascada on them. But when I listen to them, they aren’t even remotely close to the actual song. I would love it if you could add something to prevent that since it is very annoying. Aside from that, I think it would be a good idea for you to add a function that allows you to transpose songs that you have downloaded on iTunes for the piano. So basically, if I have a song on iTunes that isn’t on the app, I could select the function and it would transpose itself to match the app. I think that it would be a good idea, and I think that it will make the app more enjoyable. Overall, it is a very fun app and I would like to see more happen with it. Thank you!
Fun, but...
by cheese1342🧀🧀🧀🧀 on 2018/05/09 03:26
I love the app and all, but I have some suggestions. First of all, for the sing jams thing, could you make an option for it, the option being not having to hit the exact note thing. Second, for the composer option, can you make it easy to figure out how to change the timing so the song you made doesn't go really slow? It frustrates me because other people's songs are the right tempo, but my songs never are. Third, when your searching for a song, could you make an option for only songs composed by smule show up? Sometimes, I don't want other people's songs because they can be wrong. Sometimes I want the actual correct version, if of course, smule made the song. That's it for now, so please make the changes. Other than that stuff, it's a great app. Oh, and one more thing, there are too many adds. And they come up too often. If you ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO HAVE ADDS, please make them different. I'm so sick of seeing your karaoke app's add. It just makes me not want to play this game or get the karaoke app.
Too many Ads now! Poor song selection
by Ashlish on 2017/10/16 04:12
I'm finally irritated enough to write this review. This use to be my favorite app, hands down. So fun and included challenges and current music. However, now there are so many ad disruptions. Playing a new tune, first an ad....playing a song you have already paid for, first an ad.... playing a free song made by another user, first an ad. It's ridiculous. Now, I barely play it, unless I have time and patience to sit through five ads in less than ten minutes. Total sell out move, btw Smule. I wouldn't mind buying it, but a monthly fee is charged with an auto subscription, or you have to sign up for a slippery trial offer. Not a good deal. Also, there use to be new songs made by Smule that were free. Now, it's the same songs over and over made by different users-Chasing Cars, Gravity Falls Theme, Hokage's Death, Hallelujah, What a Wonderful World.....seriously! It's been those songs for at least a year now. Change it up a bit and I don't mean different Smule user composers. That comes off pretty cheap and makes me wonder what I would get from allowing you to charge my card every month if I signed up.
There are things that need to be improved
by MinecraftMermaids👍 on 2018/11/25 20:54
I really do like the game a lot, which may seem weird considering my 3-star rating. It’s just there are a few things about this game that make it less enjoyable. One: how hard it is to make Smoola. Honestly I’ve just given up on leveling entirely because I’m only getting 1 smoola every time I level up! You may say that you’re making up for it by giving us songs when we level up instead of Smoola, but I’m sorry, not all of us WANT to play classic songs. It was much better when you got 25 Smoola for leveling up, because it felt more rewarding and we could actually get the songs we want. Two: WAYYYYYY too many ads. I don’t want to see an ad every time I finish playing a song. I’ve actually had to find ways to avoid getting the ads just so I don’t have to watch them, but then I don’t get the XP for the song I just played. Maybe you should just leave the ads in the get more Smoola area. Three (and this is the biggest one in my opinion): The fact that it pauses any time I press the screen with four fingers. Ok, it makes sense that the pause screen would be sensitive if I push hard on the screen, but it’s doing it almost every single time I use four fingers, making it almost IMPOSSIBLE to play certain songs and enjoy them because it’s pausing every two seconds. Maybe you should make it so that the pause screen isn’t so sensitive to touch and there’s just an actual button to pause it, because this is getting really annoying.
It is okay, BUT could be better!!!
by Twinkies5everrr on 2018/02/16 05:58
I believe that Magic Piano is a good app. It is fun and creative.., and I really like the fact that people have the opportunity to compose songs ^-^... however, there are some huge problems about this app -.-... To begin with, there are SERIOUSLY WAYYYYY too many advertisements. (No exaggeration) There is an ad EVERY single time I finish a song. Also, when I select a free song (Or even one of mY songs!¡!) to play, an ad/video pops up. I think this is very annoying and makes me a lottt less interested to play the game. Another problem is that since a lot of the songs are not free, it is really hard to buy songs when you barely have any smoolas. It is so hard to get smoolas because (i don't know if this is just me) every time i complete those free offers to get smoolas, it NEVER works. Back in the olden days where the compose magic piano update was long gone, the offers would actually work and reward me... Magic Piano was not that bad a while ago, but now, its progress is going downhill :(
Not Sure What to Think
by BlitzyWolf on 2019/01/21 02:29
I grew up playing this and thought it was amazing. However, after deleting it after a few years and deciding to revisit a childhood memory...it most certainly disappointed me. The constant ads drive me insane whenever I play various songs of a relatively short duration. Not only that, but being able to afford the songs I wish to play is just depressing to look at without the means of spending money. Although I understand there must be ads and a reason to become a VIP to earn money, I don’t see a purpose strong enough to convince me to spend a penny on this app. On a different note, I’ve played this on my iPad and have found it exceedingly frustrating to attempt playing songs on a hard difficulty due to the four finger taps available during them, because it pauses the song and brings up a menu from the bottom about half of the times I try to play the four finger notes. I’m unsure why a pausing mechanic like that was implemented into the game due to inconvenience and how unnecessary it is. So, I highly doubt that I will return to using this app unless some of its serious issues are properly addressed.
It’s great but more
by kelly old mellie on 2018/07/23 05:50
I love this app you can play really good songs and especially I love how you put Beethoven songs I love playing them every day I love listening to music it just is pretty easy but I like it the only thing is I hate when you have to watch an ad before you play one of your favorite songs please just get rid of this these ads because like I’m starting to hate this app but I really love it and I love just like everything and it’s really nice how you put every song but and I don’t like how you have to cost coins for it and I just wanted to be like you know how on karaoke you can choose whatever song you want by now on this you don’t choose like what song you want and I want to choose whatever song I want to play but I can’t because I’m trying to practice on my 🎹 even though I love it and the only thing is just get rid of all the ads😘😛😠 all at the same time
Used to be great
by Pyrowo1f on 2018/03/20 20:53
This app used to be a lot of fun. I used to play it every day. Since then, I moved on, but I remembered the app and came back. It’s taken a turn for the worst now. You used to have an ad-free experience even as a free user. You could still watch ads to get the in-app currency, Smoola, so you could buy songs. I did this almost religiously day by day. You can still do this, too. However, now you also get an ad after every. Single. Song. And that’s assuming you own the song. If you don’t, you’ll need to watch an ad before you play the song, too. The composer feature is incredible, and the user created songs are wonderful. The fact that they only cost 25 Smoola a piece is awesome. The ability to share your performances with friends, family, and the world (through the in-app “World” feature and the Smule website) is cool, too. But the entire experience is completely ruined by the prevalence and disruptiveness of the endless ads. Unless, of course, you pay the subscription fee on a monthly, three month, or annual basis.
It’s great!!! But...
by Heggru on 2018/09/03 22:51
This is by far my favorite app of all time! But... it’s got a one thing that isn’t so great. when ever I try to watch an video to get more smoola, it lets me watch it but then doesn’t give me the smoola and I’ve tried over and over again but it still won’t work!!! And when ever I get free songs it says that I need to pay for them even after it lets me play them!!! And sooooo many of my favorite songs need VIP access and I don’t have the money for something a stupid as a couple of songs on an app!!! But I still love this app even when it kills me off of it repeatedly and sometimes forces me to delete it along with all the songs I’ve payed for!!! And don’t even get me stated on the freaking billions of ads!!!! They suckkkkk!!! And almost every time I mess up it either doesn’t say anything or says something completely different then what I did and I know what I did but it’s kinda annoying to have it not tell me.
This app has gone downhill.
by Pinapplesonpizza on 2018/08/21 06:09
I used to thoroughly enjoy this app, but it has become consistently worse as time has gone on. There used to be occasional ads, which are understandable, as you do have to make money, but now there are ads before and after almost every song. In similar fashion, you used to be able to play your songs offline, however now, to foster more advertising, no doubt, you must be online to play. Songs you purchase also have developed a nasty tendency of disappearing from one’s list of songs, and are still playable without purchase if you search for them, however this is annoying when you just wish to scroll through yours songs and play one, and it disappeared without your knowing. There was a time I’d have rated this app 5 stars, but due to increasing problems that add up, I’m giving it 2. I’m going to keep it downloaded in case updates fix any of these problems, but for now I’m going to stop playing, so they don’t get advertising money that I don’t think they deserve off of me.
Some magic in magic piano smule
by sophieshopkins😊 on 2018/06/24 01:49
I used to not like this game at all. I was thinking about deleting the app last time I played, but when I played it again, some things changed. There is actually some songs I like that are free, but ads. When you click on a song to play, it says your free content will be available after this ad, and it’s really annoying. I’ve gotten used to it, but I feel like they should get rid of that. Tons of people are tired of ads on games, and maybe magic piano smule can get rid of the ads on this game. That would totally bring back a lot of people. I 85% of me thought it was a good idea to delete this app, but I’m lowering it to a 40% now because I’m kinda impressed. Also, it’s kind of cool how there’s a ton of options other than ads to get free smoola. And I like that it’s only 25 smoola for songs I like instead of like 50. But on the other hand, you don’t get much smoola at all when you level up. They should give you 5 smoola, not like two! I’ll give it one more stars than I did before.
AWESOME! Get it! its worth it!
by WaterAirFireEarth on 2018/07/13 02:05
Okay so i have probably had this app for like three years or something and i just recently came back to it and fell in love with it. and theres all these bad reviews like “ Oh theres too many adds” or “They all cost coins to get them!” Witch is bull because all games have adds try to think of one game on you're phone or iPad right now that doesn't have adds? Yeah you couldn't think of any could you. and its not like theres That many either. and for the people who say “oh well most of the songs cost coins!” Seriously? Theres a get more coins section and all you have to do is watch an add and u get enough coins for you're new song there. all i'm trying to say is this a great app and anyone who is thinking about getting it get it! because theres no hurt in giving it a try and if u don't like it then just delete it.
This is not fair
by Frankiew0415060 on 2017/09/23 14:25
Ok so my 6 year old brother had my phone and he knows everything about it so he added his finger print to the phone and I had the Touch ID for my Apple ID and I found out I was getting these charges I didn’t know what they were at first but then I checked it out and saw charges from magic piano I haven’t even played this game in like 2 months so when I saw I got charges I thought that it was a mistake but I called my card and they told me that about a month ago I applied for a subscription on the app magic piano like I said I haven’t played this game I’m forever the only person that played it was my little brother and since he had my finger print he purchased the subscription and no one knew he might’ve thought it was free because when the purchase screen shows up it says free trial key word free so my brother saw that and pressed the button he saw the fingerprint sign and but his finger this is not fair at all we didn’t even know we were being charged and we weren’t even playing the game this is really unfair and I will never download this game again
It's okay, but...
by D.Mattle on 2017/11/20 21:10
It's a little frustrating when you level up you're rewarded with a song you have already gotten for free. Also, the daily free songs just repeat over and over rarely giving you something you don't already have. One more thing I don't like is that most of the really good songs are only available with a "monthly subscription". That's it, everything else is good. 3 stars Update: I've been playing this game since 2011. It's always had its quirks that made it a pain in one way or another. The last year or so it has gotten so forceful with advertising that it's not even fun anymore. I very rarely play it anymore. Usually if I'm waiting in the car while the wife is shopping or something. There is an ad before and after every song. You can't close it without closing the game. Ridiculous to have to watch a 30 second ad to get your points, so you can watch another ad before you play the same song again at a different difficulty then another ad to get your stars. So I'm taking my previous stars back. Much to greedy anymore.
Good for fun, but not really for a wallet.
by ILuvHetalia on 2018/10/03 02:23
I wanted to use the free trial for a little bit, just to play some of the songs I liked. Well, it reactivated the trial somehow after I cancelled it. I didn’t do anything to reactivate it. And it didn’t even tell me. So, now I’m out $25 cause of it. You guys need to at least say it when you charge for the subscription cause I had no clue it was happening. I don’t have a job of my own, and I was using a credit card my parent opened for me. I hope you guys read this and figure out a way to fix this issue so people know when they’re gonna be charged. Or, instead of telling the, after they’re charged, tell them a few days before so they can cancel if need be. Not only that, but I can’t even access songs I was able to play with the VIP subscription after they were in my songbook. Why not just remove them from the song book rather than taunt players who cancelled their subscription with songs they played. You guys have gone downhill over the years...
What happened?
by OMGitswolfie on 2017/12/23 02:43
What in the world happened to this game?! I'm just a kid and i used to love this game when I was really young where I could play any song and didn't have to pay for any! What happened to that? You guys seem more greedy for money and we need a freaking VIP membership to get songs that is really popular?? WHAT?! Membership costs like 100 bucks! And what's with all the adds?? Everytime I just finish a song an add comes up and most of them are apps I already have! Some adds have sexual content which I shouldn't be seeing! I really enjoy this app but the songs that I love are like 75 coins now! Now I have to copy it and change a note just so I could play it! What's up with all of that stuff?! If the adds get away or the VIP is more cheap like 10 bucks or something more people would buy it instead of making it 100 bucks people wouldn't buy it so expensive! Too many adds are occuring! I give this a 3 stars.
Not much fun anymore!
by DallasFawn on 2018/06/02 22:41
I have been using this app for over 5 years. I loved it and was addicted. I loved challenging myself to play the easy level perfect, then medium, then hard. If I messed up, I restarted. Many songs were quite challenging. I loved it until level 100; the highest you can go. It’s like the developers of the app gave up. No more achievements to earn, no coins for leveling up and no new instruments. How disappointing!! I played this app every day. It was fun, challenging, and relaxing. I agree the VIP members only should be removed. I also would pay a small fee to remove the horrendous amount of ads that I am forced to endure. It was never like that when I started. And I had an issue a year or so back where I had to uninstall and reinstall the app. Lost all my progress. Songs were there but no stars. Like starting all over again. I was upset. So, where once I would have given it 5 stars, I gave 3. I was debating if I should give it a 2. And I forgot to mention the daily challenge of which I never got into the top 50. How did all of us, get an average score of around 1,212 points while 1 person got 2,065. Impossible, and it happened many times. If the developers put better changes in an update and make the app similar to what it used to be, I would give them 5 stars again. I am an older person and I’m disappointed in this app.
This app is horrible.
by Jammapanda on 2017/07/08 03:05
Let me start with the fact that you only earn one smoola every time you level up, which every song costs 25 to 75 smoola so that is very ridiculous also taking into account that to get more than around 30 XP, you have to play a new song. Next the game will tell you that your finger is "too far right" or "too far left" when your finger is exactly on the note which brings down points. The songs are mostly a bunch of crap and if you buy a song that isn't what it says it was you can't return it, no you're stuck with a worthless song. Also let me mention, there is an ad after EVERY SINGLE SONG YOU PLAY. I have the patience to sit through an ad every two to three songs but after every single song? It's ridiculous. You have to pay an $8 a week membership just to play certain songs or not have to use smoola to unlock songs which is absurd. Maybe $8 a month but not a week. A month would be around $32 so a year would be around $500. Wow. This is a horrible app.
This app makes my life much better....
by caddy granny on 2018/10/26 20:52
I’ve played songs on Magic Piano for five years. I’m sorry to see so many complaints in the reviews. I guess they are dissatisfied with the game element. I just play the song book as I have a subscription yearly. It is dang little money to pay for the hours of pleasure it affords me. I’m 78 years old and there is hardly a day goes by that I don’t have my Smule fix. I have mastered over 400 songs pretty much sticking to the traditional, musical theatre, and classical ones. I like to see my scores even though I can’t usually better my highest scores probably posted years ago. My old fingers are not as flexible as they used to be. I love the concerts I play for myself and get great satisfaction in playing my favorites over and over. Use my iPad Pro and love Magic piano. ❤️❤️
Normies only; not for music enthusiasts
by Darren is epic435 on 2018/03/08 01:47
If you are a hip, cool young adult female, you would love this. For a serious musician or even someone starting in music, this is not for you. Most songs available are from smule, and put to the top of every list. All of the songs are dumb pop numbers that never captured the depth of said pop numbers even if the originals were still shallow. Almost every song put out by them is easy to play and sounds vaguely like the original. As for the composer feature, its stupid. There are only 2 time signatures available, 4/4 and 3/4, meaning no waltz in 6/8 or oddities in 5/4. The system is for beginners who don’t know how to read sheet music which is fine, except this is the ONLY way to write songs, which makes songwriting here TEDIOUS. Also, once you post your song, the only way for it to be seen is if someone searches one of your tags or titles. Meaning all of smule’s crappy songs are on top. They also have a weird fetish for chasing cars.
To the ruthless complainers
by Jane Spindly on 2017/11/11 02:33
For those who complain about ads, go read a book. They're just a few seconds long, and you can close them easily. If it gives you crashes I'm sorry, but just do what I do: play the entire song except for the last note. Then you can go and play a different one. Yes, that blocks off your experience, but you can just get one of the easy XP 1000+ songs and be rich. And for those who say all the good songs are VIP, go read two books. You do not deserve the pleasure of hearing the masterpieces of Disney orchestras. Musicals have fantastic music too, so please stop complaining about your cool teenage rap songs being unavailable. This is the only app you'll ever need, if you can't see that then you obviously don't recognize how much of a blessing it is.
Garbage
by TheGantos119 on 2017/12/28 19:21
I used to like this app. But now it’s just a cheap excuse for money. There’s too many ads. You have to watch an ad or else you won’t get any score for playing a song. You can’t play offline either, or else it won’t show your songs. You know why? Because ads have to have internet to work. I’m not doing a monthly subscription for smule points either. It’s just a piano app. It’s not like Xbox Live or PlayStation+ where it makes sense to have a monthly subscription. Because with those, you have more than just one game. Not just one where you tap the screen. I just don’t see the point in that. I’m sick of the video ads too. You’re forced to watch one once you finish a song and it gets annoying and repetitive very quickly. Not to mention you have to watch them if you want to get more songs. Or, you could subscribe to smule. Again, I don’t see why anyone would want to do this. If this game was fair and not such an obvious excuse to make a few dollars, I wouldn’t have a problem with it.
Pretty awesome!
by Okay👍🏼 on 2017/06/30 22:27
This game is so addicting and fun, it's cool that other players can make their own songs and compose actual real songs too!👍😁 But most the time they get the song wrong and don't do it right and mess up the song they are actually trying to make...but it's ok. Some songs people compose are actually very good👍. Also, it makes a bigger song selection.😀It is really hard to get money though, you have to watch a 20 sec. ad to get at least 5 smoola (money). Ads are really sooo annoying!😒😔 Recently there has been an ad every time I play a song (Finish a song). Pretty annoying! Problems: - Too many ads - Someone should check bad, incorrect, or songs that aren't really...songs... Overall, this game is so simple, yet challenging...which makes it so fun! 😀
Steals your smoola
by iraz12345 on 2018/06/13 20:14
So I’ve always loved this app and had it on my devices since 2015, always loved it. Now here’s where it gets annoying. There are times when I would search up a song and try and purchase it with smoola. I looked up the song “suteki Dane” by final fantasy and had 29 in smoola. The price for the song was 25 so I was like okay, I can afford this. I clicked the icon with the 25 smoola on it and it started loading saying “preparing your song” and then out of nowhere it said “something went wrong” so in my head I was like, OK. I’ll just wait a bit then open up my songs cause I already bought it. I opened up the app again and it still had that purchase next to the song so I clicked on it again and it said I don’t have enough smoola so I was like oh I think it might have been in my song book already. But no! I went to my song book and it wasn’t even there and smule charged me 25 smoola and now I’m left with 4 smoola on my account. And I didn’t even get the song I wanted to buy. 🤷🏾‍♀️
Ads are too annoying-full version too costly
by csf97 on 2018/04/23 00:02
I don’t mind an ad every so often, but it has gotten to where you have to view an ad to play a song, view an ad as soon as you hit continue after finishing the song and then view an ad again as soon as you select the next song. I will never buy Adventure Capitalist no matter how many times you show me that super annoying ad. I would love to play it to relax and get rid of stress, but the constant ads cause stress instead of relieving it. I would buy this game in a heartbeat if it was $19 or less as a one time purchase, but the monthly subscription is ridiculously priced. Also, I don’t know if it is my new iPad Generation 6 or the latest iOS update but it is incorrectly penalizing for “too many fingers” the last day or so, especially when it’s a 4 finger note. Please, Smule, reconsider the number of ads or your pricing method and fix the recent incorrect “too many fingers” error.
Used to be great, but...
by Random Gaming Person on 2018/01/24 04:08
I used to LOOVE this game, and frankly, I still should. My problems with this game have nothing to do with actual gameplay, but with the company itself. I have just a couple points to make, and honestly, they’re easily fixable, and should’ve never happened in the first place. 1. You have to pay for EVERYTHING I’d say there are about 3 songs I actually WANT to play in the free section. My favorite songs are always VIP. For 25 smula you can get songs from the 60-90s. With 50 smula you can get old, badly composed, easy modern songs. With 75, you can get more popular songs, (e.g. the stranger things theme) but so far I’ve seen one song connected to the Sing! Karaoke app that wasn’t VIP. Smula are INCREDIBLY hard to get, earning a few when you level up, sometimes you can get even less after playing a song, and you can watch videos for FIVE SMULA EACH. I’ve also had a problem with this where I had to watch two videos before I got any smula. 2. ADS. ADS EVERYWHERE. Every single time I complete a song I get an ad. Before most “free” songs, there’s an ad too. Sometimes, I’ll just get an ad randomly. My conclusion is you really have to pay to move forward in the game. This game is a complete and total cash grab. I’ve had it on and off over the past 4 years, deleting it every time solely because there are too many ads and too little options. Yes, this game is fun, but everything else is a complete and utter mess.

Soooo many adds
by bdjdhbdhxhsbxjsbx on 2019/02/17 15:42
Ok so I don’t know if it’s just me but they let you play a quarter of the song then they don’t let you play any more until you watch an add
It charged me $74.34...
by ZayaMarie on 2019/02/17 14:29
The app has been charging me $10.62 a WEEK since February and I didn’t find out until today it has been such a pain to try to get refunds for the $9.99 subscription I have been paying for but never used because I didn’t know about it. I don’t ever remember downloading the app and playing it I’ve just had it on my phone... but now I’m definitely going to delete it after this.
Tons of Smule ads on VIP account?!
by Tired-but-happy eyes on 2019/02/17 08:53
Just wanted to add my voice to the other recent reviews (in hope things will change very soon; otherwise I’m not renewing my yearly VIP subscription when it comes due in a month...) These annoying ads for other Smule apps show up every couple of minutes, between every song I play, even though I pay around $40 a year for VIP Access. There are other irritating aspects of this app: other users’ songs that you buy often disappear from the list of songs you own (which is a great problem especially for non-VIP players who have to earn in-game coins for each song they buy); also, if you search for a particular song, you will generally get a huge list of options for the same title - a couple of them may be good arrangements from Smule or some very talented fellow users (or copied from sheet music), but most seem to be from other users who have claimed these other arrangements (stealing the credit from those who actually did the work) and/or don’t even have that song when you click on it, so you have to wade through a lot of stuff each time. Despite these problems, the fun and exhilaration of being able to play all sorts of songs right away, without the hours of practicing each one would take me on an actual piano, made the VIP Access Pass well worth it for me until now. However, these ads are like a long, loud burp in the ear and ruin the relaxation I used to get in this app. Please remove these ads from VIP passes and lessen or remove them for free players to make Magic Piano enjoyable again - for the sake of your customers and the success of your product.
It’s a good app, but not enough free songs.
by CiusAJR on 2019/02/16 21:54
Here should be better free songs. You either have to wait until you can add up 25 smoolas or be a VIP and I’m 12, I can’t pay to be a VIP or to get more smoolas so I cant play my favorite songs (especially by marshmello) so it’s really aggravating.
Stupid nazis with the big gway
by Master Weeb on 2019/02/16 16:49
Took all my songs that I paid good money for now I just wasted 400 Smula I’m gonna pre!!!
I hate it!!!!
by Murph.MB on 2019/02/16 14:06
It always told me to go fast then to go slow. Make up your mind!! I was always angry so this is why I wouldn’t get it. Plz listen to my advice and don’t get it!!!
Nice
by OneRandomAsian on 2019/02/16 08:33
Love the songs. But, could use a few less ads.
Terrible
by Some player of the game on 2019/02/16 04:45
This game stole my money and I’ve asked for it back it took over 3 dollars after I said I didn’t want the weekly subscription then since I had money in my iTunes account it just took it and I’m asking for it back it’s 3 dollars Smule it won’t hurt your profit
I ❤️ this game!!
by B1245hi on 2019/02/16 03:39
I love this game every kind of song for everyone, but I unfortunately cannot progress anymore as there are no more levels. PLEASE ADD MORE LEVELS!!
More challenges!
by Mike19671967 on 2019/02/15 20:20
I’ve been playing this game for many years and love it soooo much! I just wish that there were more challenges and more was to compete against other players! The daily challenge is a super fun way to see where you rank but I just want more of that!!!! Much love for this game though!
So many ads and the four fingers
by Chozopriest on 2019/02/15 20:17
Their is so many ads and when I try to play the four finger notes it just pauses what’s up with that
Smule
by Colsaw2.0 on 2019/02/15 19:58
I’m just disappointed.
I love it but the adds
by USA000 on 2019/02/15 19:16
I love the game I have it on my phone and iPad.but there are so many adds and it takes soo long to level up.but I flipping love the game so I give it five stars 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Can’t even record voices
by dedmemesrlife on 2019/02/15 19:08
So I am a major fan of imagine dragons but they can’t even record a voice for all the ads it is is horrible but there is a way to get around the ads just put your iPhone or iPad on airplane mode
Magic piano
by Butthead22999 on 2019/02/15 06:30
I didn’t even delete the app and it got rid of all my songs...
More credit
by FREE MINECRAFT MAPS on 2019/02/15 04:38
On the add you show soooo many songs to play but in real life it takes you like, 1 year to get 2 songs
Frustrating glitch
by smickmonkey on 2019/02/15 02:19
Almost every song I play on hard mode results in the song pausing every time I have to use 4 fingers, this is very frustrating and even tho the song continues when you hit play there is a coupe second window that you cannot press keys so I end up missing a lot of notes, this needs to be fixed, other than that the game is fun expect the constant adds
What the heck?
by 🐉✨✨APPSTAR✨✨🐉 on 2019/02/15 00:37
As usual I went to play my game every day in piano. I checked my songs and they weren’t there. What the flip happened to them?!?! That was not cool at all 😡 😡. I worked long and hard for them and they were favorites, I want you to fix that. And can you make the key typing easier?? I mean it’s really complicated to type and pay attention to the notes at the same time. Fix these please as soon as possible!! Thank you
To fast Too HARD
by shhdbdjdjdhid on 2019/02/15 00:10
How can you guys play this game it is hard and it does not have fun songs
Whhhhhhhhhyyyyyyyy
by 🐵🐶⚽️ on 2019/02/14 23:09
Ads are being the death of me ☠️
Impossible to use without paying
by Milky Way Girl on 2019/02/14 21:13
In between every song there is an extremely long advertisement without a pro account, preceded with the condescending message “Your free content will be available after this message!” The game itself is unenjoyable. New songs are already locked by the VIP account, so why add advertisements that actually damage game quality? I was willing to watch as many advertisements for earning coins but in the middle of gameplay is unacceptable. Since playing this game from the first time I had access to an iOS device, I am leaving it behind forever unhappily. Goodbye.
Constant Ads! So Annoying!
by TXGirl59 on 2019/02/14 08:23
This use to be so much fun and one of my most played games/apps. Then they began to put an ad after every single song or choice. Even if you’ve purchased the song, it still puts the ads up constantly after and before every single song. Took the fun right out of the app. I rarely play anymore.
Help
by kswagzill on 2019/02/14 05:18
I want my money Back. I accidentally clicked restore my vip when I wanted to cancel!! Please help me
It’s annoying
by GeneralMeowMeow on 2019/02/14 00:23
Kay so I play this game to get a feel for new songs but nearly every time I go to play a four chord the menus pulls up and interrupts my song. It’s really annoying and it makes the game hard to enjoy
Still get adds with VIP pass!!!
by Kvedvulf on 2019/02/13 00:08
So... Long story short, I have played magic keyboard for years on many different devices and os's. Back in the day the game was difficult, required a lot of effort and it was super fun. I just got a new device and decided to get this app one more time to try it out. I noticed quickly that the old songs I used to play are gone, there are less free options and getting smule coins is a lot harder and the app was a money grab. And ads, lots of ads that take away the quality of the game. I wanted to see if the app was any good in the VIP section so I got a one time VIP pass hoping the old game was there, that I know and enjoyed. The songs I miss playing are still gone, and worst of all I got ads in the same frequency as VIP as I did prior to being VIP. The pass isn't worth it! The game is dead!
So. Many. Ads.
by jellieskeeper on 2019/02/12 23:05
Ok, let me start with the positives. This app can be really fun. I enjoyed playing the songs they have but, unfortunately, when I started playing the songs today just like I used to before, there were freaking adds every time I pushed a button, literally. I press on a song, there is an add. I finish a song, there is an add. I repeat a song, there is an add. Please take away some of the adds because there is just so many. I really don’t mind some adds, but not every time I try to do anything. So plz decrease them.
What was fun is now annoying.
by SentientScarf on 2019/02/12 22:16
There’s been reviews saying the same problems I’m about to give. No responses from the makers either, and no problems have been solved. Ads. Way too many. Like, seriously, if you want your money than stop with the ads and give more promotions to those who pay. Every time I click on something there’s an ad. Finish level? Ad. Start level? Ad. Review a composer? Ad. Stop. With. The. Ads. You’re suffocating us. There’s not enough reward for leveling up. Wow, one coin and a song I won’t like after the 3rd time playing it. Maybe give more the more you level up or something. Songs are 25 coins AT LEAST. That means you’ll have to level up and watch videos endlessly to buy ONE song. Free songs? Yeah, wow, great, but I’d enjoy getting them more if there were MORE OPTIONS and LESS ADS. Again, there’s been no developer responses on hardly any reviews, if they’ve responded at all; so I’m going to assume they only care for money and wasting other people’s time, not their users.
Smoola
by Prim E. on 2019/02/12 21:22
My coins/smoola is stuck at 17. It’s really annoying cause I watched about 6 of the free adds which should have given me 30 smoola, but it’s just stuck at 17. Also the adds are incredibly annoying and so long. I had this app about 7 years ago and it was better back then without all the ads.
They just won’t listen.
by CaraH628 on 2019/02/12 17:17
Okay, so I just had a peaceful few days of not having ads after every song, and now they’re back! -_- ugh (This is the review I wrote before) So I have known about this app since I was around 7 or 8 about a year after it came out. I remember back then that there were very few ads, and I just loved playing my favorite songs for hours! Now that has changed. I love the idea of being able to play a piano on your phone, but not when there’s ads after every single song you play. Not to mention that the piano is so quiet compared to the ads that if I have earbuds in, the ad’s music literally kills my ears! The daily challenge scores are most likely chosen randomly based on what I’ve seen, and that’s really disappointing. Also if there’s a long pause in a song, the notes will come down way faster than they’re supposed to (and you’ll lose your point streak if you wait). Oh yeah, and why is almost every song VIP? Why would someone pay $7.99 a week or whatever to play the piano on their phone? So that’s my rant, there’s probably more to complain about that I haven’t thought of.
A bug
by Gfdghfdhb on 2019/02/12 16:38
A bad bug happened... it’s where it keeps putting up the menu when I’m playing faded.
Scammed
by Ax3 God on 2019/02/12 14:12
So I may just be stupid but this app has cost me over $160 without me knowing I signed up for that 7 day trial to play all the songs for a little bit I did and I ended up deleting the game before the trial was over and not to my knowledge it just kept charging me after that and I just can’t figure out how to cancel this subscription I suspect it’s cost me like $200 or more without my knowledge so I really suggest you just don’t waste your time as many of the songs require you to pay for the subscription to play them anyways
Decent but..
by Ahlexus99 on 2019/02/12 07:53
Decent game. Obviously marketed to people of all ages. I’m 18 and enjoy it. My only problem is that I cannot play 3 finger notes? It simply does not register. Can’t use 1 hand, can’t use both. 2 finger notes and 4 finger notes work perfectly. 3? Nope. Please try to fix this or have a calibration setting we can use.
Used to love this game
by AJaxRiley98 on 2019/02/12 07:03
It used to be great had a decent amount of free songs now all the free ones aren’t even in key and there is an ad before and after EVERY single song. Absolutely horrible. I get you need ads for free games but that’s ridiculous.
To many ads
by 3milyism3 on 2019/02/12 04:18
I really enjoy this game and everything but after ending a song and after claiming items you have to sit through so many ads which just makes the game unfun
200,000 stars!
by APPLE!!!!!!!! on 2019/02/12 02:22
This game gives me excitement for the daily challenge ever day and I love it! And I love that they have all my favorite songs on there! My sincere opinion, -apple user-
ZERO STARS STEALING MY MONEY
by Thatgrungewaffle on 2019/02/12 00:00
these crazy people trying to steal $7.99 out my debit card EVERY WEEK. And I deleted the app a long time ago. I can’t even get a refund DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS SCAM APP. They will take money out your card without your permission.
It used to be a good game
by CoolKat8088756 on 2019/02/11 23:53
Magic Piano used to be a good game. In the older versions it was a nice game, but then it started to become worse and worse. When I was playing I had to press the exact dot(s) that was supposed to be played, which made it way more had for me to enjoy it without getting angry. Also it keeps trying to charge me and I get that they have to make money some how, but the whole game shouldn’t be based on paying for something you don’t need. When really it should be based on how much people enjoy it.
DO NOT GET ITS A RIPOFF
by dontgetdisapp on 2019/02/11 17:29
Take this app off here jus giving away ppl money without them knowing do not get
It WONT stop PAUSING
by I won't tell you stalkers on 2019/02/10 07:02
The app is great, but I have two main things. First of all, every single time I have to play a four finger note, it will pause the song and I will have to hit resume OVER AND OVER. I don’t know what’s going on but i have been avoiding hard songs because us continually have to hit resume. Second, how do you compose your own song? If you have to be a VIP I think that’s dumb because people who don’t pay for the app already have only half the songs on the app. Besides that the app is good overall, but it’s really frustrating sometimes.
Too glitchy
by iolani5699 on 2019/02/10 02:16
Almost every time I use four fingers it goes to the pause button
It is the worst
by animallover108 on 2019/02/09 23:12
In the middle of a song it won’t stop pausing and it is non stop all it is is for money I do not think it is worth getting
The song DEMONS!
by Demons is the best! on 2019/02/09 21:40
I love that song alot! I always, or sometimes I hear it pn gacha videos.It’s on youtube you can watch Nessa Duck, or if you some of the videos.I am a little kid.I might be a little to young for this app.🙄😬🥴😶🥺. Well ummmmmmmmm........... I like this app a lot because it’I like this app a lot You can play all different songs and one of my favorites is sorry not sorry and Demons those are my two Favorite songs. Don’t judge me because I am a little kid!? I like playing it so yeah so you can watch it on gacha studios and it is the best. I almost like play um All of it! So people who don’t know I know this app just just rate it with five stars becauseIt is the best app in the whole wide world so go on go to the App Store and buy magic piano!!
Used to be great
by kittythugwonder on 2019/02/09 01:15
An ad for their other games after every song is why I canceled my subscription. They just got lazy with this app. The users now make the songs so now all you have are watered down top 40 over and over. Their own ads crash their own game
Menu pops up when I press with 4 fingers?
by The Reviewing Anymous on 2019/02/07 23:11
So I’m playing one of my favorite songs, and I decide to play hard mode. You know, where you have to tap with 4 fingers to actually play the song? So I start playing the song, but when I tap the orange dots with my fingers, the menu pops up, the one with the “Menu,” “Return to Songbook,” etc. I shrug it off, see it as a small glitch, but I do it again and it does the same thing. I think, “that’s weird,” but I keep going. I get done with a quarter of it before I think something’s wrong. I restart the song and it still does it. I look in settings and there’s nothing I can do about it. I try it one more time and have to resist throwing my iPad across the room because the menu pops up, interrupting my song. Please fix this.
Charging me for app when I no longer have it installed!
by bcarrett on 2019/02/07 18:22
This app is a fraud and stealing money from the people that download it!!! DO NOT DOWNLOAD
fix some stuff
by Natarthegreatar on 2019/02/06 17:44
this game was one of my all-time favorites when i was younger, but now it’s extremely frustrating. i am receiving an unskipable ad after every single song i’m playing, which is excessive and annoying, especially considering i’ve had to watch ads to get these songs in the first place. another problem i’m having is watching videos just stopped giving me smoola. i have watched so many videos and yet my coin count is still stuck at 21. this is frustrating because you guys are making money off ads that i’m CHOOSING to watch for a reward that i am not receiving. it’s a scam and it’s ridiculous. you’ll get your 5 stars back when you cut down the ridiculous ads and give me the money that i earned.
ONE STAR
by Iliketycoons on 2019/02/06 01:28
I hate it. People if you like watching ads come here! I have seen the same advertisement.. GOD KNOWS HOW MANY TIMES! It says this content will be free after this short message. Then we watch that play the game for a minute and a half and BOOM! Another ad. Either give us an ad free version and have us pay for like maybe $2. Stop with the ads. You should already have enough money with the VIP. That’s already expensive enough. Deleted!
Only one problem
by Chance12345 on 2019/02/05 22:26
So I have recently downloaded this game because it seemed like a cool app. I love playing the songs and really enjoy the music. However...I do NOT enjoy having to watch an ad every...single...time I play a song. Every time I finish a song, it gives me an add. It even sometimes gives me an ad before the song as well! I feel that some of the songs that you can buy with coins are too expensive. It takes a huge amount of upgrading and achievements to earn a mere 25 coins for a song you might play twice. I feel that this app could have some improvements, but overall I would give it a good rating.
STOP PLAYING ADS AFTER EVERY SONG
by Slither Enthusiast on 2019/02/05 10:28
- or at least give us the option to purchase the app ad-free. This is so irritating, that I stopped playing altogether over a year ago. I re-downloaded the app recently to play again, only to find that it still plays ads after every. Single. Song. So happy to find nothing’s changed the past year. I’ll be back next year and hopefully there will be less ads or the creators will at least have the decency to give us an ad free version for a one time payment low cost (like 3 bucks or something, I mean common they’re already charging ridiculous prices to be a VIP member- don’t even get me started on being a VIP member, that’s another disaster) Point is: loved this app, was one of the best... until they decided to play ads after every song. Such a waste of a beautiful app. Fix it while you still can and have a decent amount of people downloading.
Too many adds
by dirtycowboy6969 on 2019/02/05 06:59
Ok... I get you have to make your money but I get an add every single time I blink, and it has seriously changed my opinion on your app.
Resume Or Exit Keeps Popping Up
by Trezzo1 on 2019/02/04 21:15
I love this app, and I love playing it on my new iPad. But there’s just one problem. Every time I go to the highest difficulty (hard) every time I click the dots it wants you to click with four fingers, the whole game pauses, thinking I’m resuming the game, when in reality I’m just trying to play on it. This can get really annoying and frustrating and should be fixed. Thanks!!
Stop
by Kukki417 on 2019/02/04 20:03
Stop trying to charge me 25.48 every month. I deleted this app along time ago and I never signed up for anything to be charged so for the 5th time I asked stop charging me!!!!!
Good but a few bugs
by CreatorMystic on 2019/02/04 18:10
There is currently a bug where free watching Ads for free Smule coins, They never show up, I watched at least 10 ads today and got 0 smule, very annoyed at this
Annoying
by Fivkfdkxovnd on 2019/02/04 16:56
This game used to be super fun. I deleted it and then redownloaded it recently, and the ads are terrible. After every song I play and before every song I play, there’s an ad. You’ve become money hungry and it’s sick. Please stop. The ads are insanely unnecessary.
Careful with subscription!
by Dsolori25 on 2019/02/04 16:04
It’s a good game very addicting but when I signed up for the 7 day free trail it said it would charge me after it was done, that was not a problem and after the trail was done I kept noticing 10 dollars where being deducted off my account EVERY WEEK and when I go to cancel they have two options that are the same exact thing for the same amount of time but more expensive it’s stupid the lost all my confidence in their games >:(
Disappointed
by KatieNichole on 2019/02/04 07:36
I don’t usually leave reviews but man do I want to for this one. I used to play this religiously. I got busy and didn’t have time to play it much. I even paid for a subscription. I recently saw an ad for it and decided I’d download it again. Right away it gave me an offer for a week trial which is subscribed to. I hadnt logged in yet since I didnt realize I needed to. I played a few songs (maybe close to 5 or 6) before I logged in, which I never should’ve done in the first place. First thing I realized was that I had to pay for them using those smule coin things, or pay for a subscription to play a song I had just played without logging in. Why was I able to play it before logging in, but once an account is created I had to pay for it? That makes ZERO sense to me. Not only that, but I cant even play a song that I had payed for in the past since it’s in MY SONGS. I had to pay for a trial in order to play it. WHY?! Also, if I’m paying for a subscription why do I have to watch an ad to play a free song? Beats me....
Terrible
by Jimmybonesaw🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻 on 2019/02/03 23:30
I have no idea why you make a good game like this and have tons of ads and you make players who want to actually property use the app pay for expensive subscriptions that are not needed whatsoever.... pretty desperate for money huh?
DONT GET IT
by Nuimo on 2019/02/03 17:46
I think it is very fun until now that everything smule related now takes a VIP membership. I think it is a terrible idea of making people pay $7.99 per week. My idea is just make people pay to get the app but then every song is free or make it still free but just add lots of adds. But until then I’m never getting anything that includes the name smule ever again.
Awesome
by Baller B7769 on 2019/02/03 17:38
There are so m any songs to play and Harry Potter is my fave but there are so many adds and you have to pay money for some of the songs but i love how you put Disney songs in there I’ve never never seen Harry Potter but i love the book thank you for putting Harry Potter in you app thanks
Not Rewarding
by Mytatgg on 2019/02/03 03:22
Its way too freaking easy to get three stars. I just tapped away until the song was over and I got a little over a star.
Okay, but a lot of things wrong
by HelloHelloHelloHiHiHi :) on 2019/02/03 01:42
First of all, the ads are super annoying, every ten seconds. I always watch like 15 ads to get coins but they never actually give me the coins. I closed down the app, refreshed it, still nothing. They're just trying to get you to buy it with money. The tapjoy "tasks" or whatwver they call them now never reward you either. Awesome idea, crappy execution.
Scam
by bigby06 on 2019/02/03 00:51
I can’t find anyway to unsubscribe from this ap and they repeatedly try to charge my card at least once a week after I locked it very disappointed
Make the subscription a one time thing.
by Jekada01 on 2019/02/03 00:19
I love this app but... I HATE the ads. I have leveled up as far as I can go. You said you were going to add new levels years ago but still have not. I will not pay 40 bucks for a yearly subscription but I would pay it as a one time payment.
Too many ads
by Tiny Swirl on 2019/02/02 19:22
Look I loved this game but like the title stated it’s too many ads after every single frickin song an ad pops up about some coloring app or a house cleaning game and it’s very frustrating because I don’t want ads. Another thing all the popular songs have vip not everyone has vip smule stop putting everything in vip and get rid of some of the ads I’m seriously thinking of getting rid of the app and all other smule apps on my phone.
Switch and bait
by rebel_em on 2019/02/02 15:21
Was playing a free song I really enjoyed and the next time I played that song cost money:( plz change!
Too many ads, great app
by jrl6281989 on 2019/02/02 05:19
Used to love this app until you had to watch an ad after every single song. Wouldn’t be so bad if they weren’t 15 second ads that usually crash. Have had this app for at least 5 years and only keep it in case the ads stop.
Cannot play on hard
by Drue J on 2019/02/02 02:02
Almost every time you hit four notes it brings up the menu and makes the game unplayable
It’s ok..
by Liv The Savage on 2019/02/01 22:54
When you are playing the songs it’s really fun but after ever song is a 30 second add. And if you watch a video to get coins, half the time they don’t give you any coins
Review
by IMDACOOKIE on 2019/02/01 22:52
The app is fun and has a lot of songs to pick from but I tried to get free Smoola’s by watching ads. I had 46 and I watched well over 10 ads yet for some reason I can’t get to 50.
Such a scam
by Letsgoeataburher on 2019/02/01 17:23
Don’t get this app unless you wanna pay money for songs...
Giving me trouble
by boi9384728293 on 2019/02/01 11:47
Every time I put on hard mode every time a four note pops up and I do it the stupid menu screen comes up it is really making me peeved if you could fix that nonsense I will change this to a five but other wise good game 👍 👎
Too many ads

Not worth the price

I initially got it for the trial but it was my bad that I never canceled it in time. But even then, seriously? $9.99 for just one week of access?

Ads
by manumons on 2019/01/30 18:56
Had this game back in high school and got addicted. Wanted to play it again and wow the ads just take away from everything... game developers please look into giving the people you made the game for a good experience. Don’t focus the guys paying you go force people to watch what they’re selling. You’ve lost stars since last time I remember... and the reviews use to be quite nice.
Ads
by Br7aqc on 2019/01/30 13:02
Hi, the eight hour ad for the stupid cleaning game is insufferable, could you s-can that bulls-? For f-ing realsies, why the f- do we need to watch an entire round of that stupid s-?

Too many ads.
by Jp962614 on 2019/01/29 20:58
I have had this app since it first came out. I’ve seen it change and transform. And I figured let’s get back and play because I really really enjoyed the game. And I realized why I haven’t played it in a while. After every song. There is an ad. The only reason I haven’t deleted it is because I had progressed so far in the game. It no longer is for the consumer. But I’m sure they’re struggling for money since no one plays it anymore and that’s why there are so many ads.

Ruined!
by erindanne on 2019/01/26 18:32
What did you guys do to this app?? First of all, you erased everyone’s songs and progress they’d saved and earned for years, then you made it so they can’t play anything without listening to a loud obnoxious ad between everyone song. I can’t stand to be on this app for longer than a single song now. It used to be so much fun.
Problem
by r@t1ngs&r3v13w5 on 2019/01/26 18:04
When ever I want to use 4 fingers in hard mode it immediately goes to the menu, which then makes me lose points for “not playing fast enough”
Issues with 3 finger touch
by wolf2244 on 2019/01/26 10:40
Love this game and used to play it all the time. I downloaded it again recently and was very disappointed to discover that the game isn’t registering when I am using three fingers to hit the notes. It has no problem distinguishing one finger, two finger, and four finger touches. Just three. But unfortunately this makes playing nearly impossible.
I used to love it but now I hate it
by lilly6591 on 2019/01/25 21:18
Ok let’s get this straight there are to many ads for the incredibly stupid game and even when u have the game u still get like 100 game ads
Simolia and songs
by ianndjcncnud on 2019/01/25 12:32
Get rid of the simolaia coins or if you get the song male sure that you can do it as many times as you like
Too many ads
by Codeguru413 on 2019/01/25 03:11
I’m with everyone else. I used to love this app and would have rated it 5 stars a few years ago. But now, an ad after every song? Ridiculous. I was fine with watching ads to get smule, but now, why bother since you’re just going to show me ads anyway?
4 note glitch
by 72947279492764 on 2019/01/24 22:20
I would be happy to rate this game 4 stars or possibly even more if I were able to play any hard mode song without it pausing continuously. Nearly every time I am met with a red chord the game freezes and it drops my 4x multiplier.
The composer doesn’t work
by rsoupb🙃 on 2019/01/24 21:38
I’ve had this app for three years, not really any problems. But now, the composer is giving me errors. It used to be fun, but if I’m the only one with the error it’s still not fun because that still means another problem; they don’t have the songs I like, which is very disappointing. So, in conclusion, if you like a lot of rap song, DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME GETTING THIS APP!!
Good game but some issues
by joyfullisa on 2019/01/24 01:12
I can’t get smoola in some ads that’s why this game kindasucks plz read this message also sometimes we can’t get ads so plz change that plz plz plz change these things my sis rlly loves playing this game and she wants those things to be changed plz read this message
I nearly broke my phone because of this game
by kh4153 on 2019/01/23 12:48
Well, this app isn't the best and most relaxing as they say it is. It's not for other people, aka me, with anger issues, I already have a crappy phone and I don't want to break my phone because this device has is MY SOUL. Also, if anyone who's saying 'Why don't you scream in a pillow?' It's not that easy, screaming in a pillow is useless; that just makes me more mad. Apart from me, the ads are just ridiculously annoying and awful, they keep giving me the same two ads, Poly Sphere and that weird dice-dominó app. I actually considered getting Poly Sphere, but this app ruined my chances Also, half of the songs cost those little money things tokens which TAKE FOREVER to get, I have to play 25 levels to get a token if I can remember. I mean for the pros the app does get me excited when I'm about to play a song, eh, that's it.
I love this app, BUT
by Karebear852k3 on 2019/01/22 21:21
There is a MAJOR glitch with the SingJam version of songs that either the timing of the notes are off, or it doesn’t recognize when you DO hit them right, so it drops your score from 4x/perfect. Extremely frustrating
Fun but...
by bluoceann on 2019/01/22 20:08
This game is so expensive. They give you a couple songs for free to try out. Advertisement videos are played before and after the free song which gets old fast. Most of the free songs given are composed by other app users. For full “VIP” access it’s $20/month. Really? Ouch. I’m not seeing the value here. Game is fun but not at that price.
Still good but things need to change
by #DA BOS5# on 2019/01/22 04:03
Nothing has really changed in the app ever since it released. Thankfully at the time it was good enough to sustain itself to this day and remain a pretty popular app. I feel like however in order to stay relevant there needs to be a lot of notable changes that are for the better. The interface needs an update because, it works but I’m tired of seeing it constantly over 7 years that I’ve had the app. Another that I am irritated with is that the screen size is not optimized for iPhone XR (which is what I have) so the whole screen isn’t filled and it makes the rest of the screen feel useless. Plus the quality of the Piano may have sounded good 7 years ago but today... it sounds terrible. Sound still comes out but it doesn’t have any rich quality that I’m looking for.
So many ads
by Bellibuttins:) on 2019/01/22 03:43
I’ve had this app on my phone for years. Every iteration of iPhone gets it, I even had it on my Android when I switched for two years to them. But within the last couple of years, the amount of ads have become absolutely unbearable. I barely play it anymore and can’t stand how difficult it is to get smoola without playing the same songs over and over or trying to beat impossible achievements. It’s exhausting to be assaulted by loud advertisements immediately after playing calm, classical music. Please do something about this without people having to pay fees to get rid of them. Y’all know you can do better.
Issues
by MithicalWolf79 on 2019/01/22 01:56
When I hit the 4 note it pauses the game
Half and Half
by BraveGirl13 on 2019/01/22 01:44
I’ve had this app for a while, and I love playing the songs and everything but I’m right up there with everyone else. There’s an ad after almost every song, and recently when I’ve watched ads to get more coins, they stop halfway through and either keep going and not give me the coin or it crashes the whole app. (I wasted an hour doing this) Not to mention that songs I’ve downloaded that were free suddenly disappear a few days later and I have to buy them, even if I’ve already unlocked it. That’s pretty lame. It’s an overall awesome app when it actually works and you can play the songs, but I am NOT paying 99.00 just to play some music. It’s a ripoff and the ads are way too much. Wish it would all change back.
I used to love it...
by @miggysbiggestfan on 2017/12/01 21:09
So I've had this app probably since I was 15 when I first got my iPhone 6, and it was addicting up until now. Okay so last night every single song I have showed 3 stars next to each level of difficulty that I have played at, and just a few minutes ago when I went to open the app, ALL of my songs showed no stars highlighted, no scores, no nothing. Like I just bought them or composed them and haven't even started playing them yet. I am really angry. 😡😡 Also there are just too many ads. 👎🏻 Every ten seconds after I finish a song, a stupid ad pops up about some coloring book or food game and it's really annoying. 😤 Also I really hate how the majority of everyone's favorite songs nowadays can't be played unless you have a VIP membership accessibility. It's ridiculous. I feel that VIP membership to play a song on Magic Piano should be banned, because you know, there are not very many VIP members in the world. I'm seriously thinking about deleting this app from my phone for permanent. I've not only had to deal with the troubles I stated above, but I've also had to deal with the app freezing up, songs I compose that won't let me publish no matter what I do, and Daily Challenge songs taking decades to load and then refreshing the app only for it to crash every time I reopen it. It's getting really frustrating and I can't take it any longer. 🚫
Went downhill
by lencofam on 2017/12/11 05:07
I used to have this app as a very young child, and the only reason why I deleted it was because I got frustrated at its difficulty. Just recently, the game crossed my mind and I decided to re-download it and give it another go. Because I’ve gotten a lot better at video games over the years, the difficulty of the game was no longer a problem. There, were, however, new problems with the game that I didn’t expect to encounter. For starters, the game has WAY to many ads. I can’t play a single song, not even a short one like Happy Birthday, without being forced to watch a stupid, boring video that I don’t care about. I got this game because I remembered how fun it was, but it’s kind of hard to have fun when 90% of the game is just you watching ads for other games. Second of all, this game is basically begging you for money at this point. The fact that some of the songs are only available to VIP users is just stupid. Do they really expect us to spend actual money on a stupid piano game that we have on our phones? Besides from that, every achievement you can accomplish in the game (leveling up, getting new songs, etc.) can be bought with just a few bucks. The fact that literally everything in this game has been put up for sale is terrible. Well, that’s my review
$mule.. it’s all about the $$$
by Samiam1023 on 2018/04/13 00:43
I loved this game for a long time but over the last year or more the ads are ridiculous and every time before you start a song .. there’s an ad.. finish a song... another ad... select another song.. an ad.. and on and on. I paid for a one week trial and didn’t realize it continued charging me. I originally signed up for 7.99 a month only to find out a couple months later they were billing me 2.99 a week! Being able to compose songs was a cool idea until I finished a level and earned 200 coins... purchased a newer song for 75 coins that was nothing more than a few taps and that was it. I didn’t get the song I paid for and that’s happened many of times. When someone submits a composure I think someone at the company should review it first before putting it out there for people to waste their money. Lastly... I have maxed out on levels so all the songs I rack points up on are of no use since the app is now not even giving me credit so unless I want to pay for VIP I have no way to earn what little reward you get for completing a level. What started out as my absolute favorite game is now nothing more than a money sucker and it doesn’t appear that it’ll improve. Great game gone to the deleted aps of my account! They aren’t getting anymore of my money!
Horrible ads!
by Mefens on 2017/12/06 13:51
I’ve always enjoyed playing magic piano. Over the years, I’ve had a membership and at other times did not. Currently, I don’t feel I play it enough to justify paying. With that being said, I have noticed some things that make this app not very enjoyable. 1. It takes FOREVER to earn smule coins. Which makes the app not much fun because I feel like I get to play the same songs over and over again. Not cool and not challenging. 2. Under “my songs” I have a bunch of songs which I have either bought or had while having a membership. At this point without clicking on each one there is no way to tell if I’m able to play it or if I need more smule. Confusing. 3. This is the most annoying of all. The ads that I see (which I do feel there are too many of) are not ones that I wish for my kids to see. There are ones that show a doll that is getting beat up and bloodied and tells you you “kick it’s a**” and that this will “relieve your stress”, really?! Not the message I want to send. There are others I have seen that are similar, zombies I believe, and there is a lot of blood. I don’t expect or desire to see these ads, ever, yet alone, over and over again. That needs to be changed or I will have to delete this once great app.
Ads, ads, ads, and ads.
by truckload of ads on 2018/11/22 06:21
Jesus Christ where do I even begin? Ok well I’ve had this game for a few years now and I swear to god it’s never been this bad. I always exit a song just before it ends to avoid watching an ad, because they’re literally after EVERY song. Not to mention before AND after free songs, which to be fair there’s a lack of, but I’m not sure I could consider that a good thing either. I have a lot of songs, over 131. So explain to me why there’s only 131 songs in the “my songs” section? Anytime I buy a new song, it doesn’t get added to the list, a problem which just recently started happening to me. There’s no way I’m gonna look up a song every time I wanna play it when it’s supposed to be added to the list for the convenience of the player. THIS BUG NEEDS TO BE FIXED. I tried looking up the songs again, and playing them through again, even beating them on all difficulties, to try and see if it got them added to the list. And it did.... until I closed the app and reopened it that is. Did I also mention that there’s way too many ads? I did? Well the game will shove it in your face again. Something needs to be done, this app is no longer of good quality from the bugs and there’s too many ads, earning smule undeserved money, the company is solely based on greed now.
Fingers too big?
by Jen Reeves on 2017/09/25 23:10
So I've only had the app for a couple of hours and I signed up for the free seven day trial. I love the selection of songs, and I played a couple on easy mode and thought they were quite fun. But if I change the difficulty above easy, there are times when I'm asked to hit three notes at once. The two dots off to the right are so close together I can't hit them both at the same time. I put my two fingers together as tightly as possible and tap the screen and it's only registering that I'm hitting one of the dots. I don't have big hands, I'm a woman of average height and average weight so my fingers are not chubby or unusual in any way. I feel like I am missing something. Like there Nice to be an obvious solution then I'm just not noticing. Especially because I don't see anyone else complaining about this problem. Maybe there should be settings I can change to make the dots a little bit further apart so that my fingers can hit them, but I don't see anything like that anywhere. So I really like the song selection and I like the concept of the game and the sound is very nice, so I would give it a higher rating if I could actually Play it above easy. Until I figure out what's wrong and how to fix it this app is useless to me.
WHAT THE HECK SMULE
by I'm a Artist on 2018/04/19 02:09
So I get you guys are a big app now, and I have had Magic Piano since it first came out, years ago. I used it when there was only basic songs like Twinkle Twinkle little Star. I’ve kept it all these years, and never have I gotten so many ads. I have over 150 songs, do you know how many Ads I had to watch? Plus free songs. I also did TapJoy stuff, and never once got my Smula (should be almost 6800 since I did ones you actually had to pay for also) I’ve reported it and then was told it was “Lost” but it said I had done it. Of course I got a little mad. Yet, I still have the app. How am I re-payed? ADS AFTER EVERY SONG! I like to play the songs but it’s annoying when a ad comes in every two seconds. As before I can play to ad after I play then repeat. It’s used to be reasonable, 1 ad after every 3-4 songs. Sometimes 5 if you watched a Smula ad. Don’t you guys already have Millions just from all of your apps combined? You guys are getting greedy. Also the VIP thing. Why are all the good songs VIP? The daily challenges used to be VIP songs, which was cool. But now it’s songs you can go and buy. Tired of it smule. I’ll keep the game and I wish to have my 6800 Smula, but I’m not going to force it. And PLEASE KEEP THE ADS ON A DOWN LOW!
Terrible
by tifpow on 2018/03/21 05:36
This app has gotten worse and worse. There is very rarely any free content created. I have a large library of songs that I accumulated when the app had a bigger variety of free songs, but even I get bored of playing those. So, does that mean I buy a VIP membership? Of course not! It’s super overpriced! To put it into perspective, a year of VIP is $40 which is about as much as a good quality Nintendo DS game. Not only does the Nintendo DS game have more to offer (offense intended) you also get to play it forever. It’s one payment of $40, not $40 a year like Magic Piano. Who in their right mind would buy a VIP subscription to Magic Piano? So, that’s off the table. I should just play the songs I have and get over it right? Or maybe save up smoola to get more. First of all, smoola takes forever to earn. I’ve been playing this game on and off for years and I got enough smoola to buy one song ONCE. Not to mention I had accumulated a lot of smoola at a point (probably over 100) and I opened the app one day and it was gone! The only reason I gave this app any stars at all is because if you’re playing one of the few decent songs you can, it’s really really fun. But it’s a terrible app that begs for money from us and lost what made it so great.
Timing....too slow...???!
by lilpkrmnstr on 2018/04/30 04:47
I love this app, but the one thing I can't stand is when it tells me I'm being too slow.. but I'm trying to play the song the way it sounds.. And it always seems to want to rush me. I'd rather be able to play the song the way it feels in the way it sounds rather than having the app tell me I'm playing too slow. Messing up is one thing, but having a longer pause at the end of that set because you're playing it with feeling is another. I think that should be fixed. Make room for a real or with feeling pause. Also.. I LOVE the community section. However, I think people just messing around makes it hard to find the people who have actually created an amazing piece. That's frustrating. If you want the quality of the app, you pay for it. Have a passion for piano music, you pay for it. People who love it will pay for it. I would love to get rid of the “junk” on it... the songs people create that make no sense. They should have to be approved or something. Keep the crap out.
UUGGHH SO ANNOYING!! ADS?!?
by Pookeylookey on 2018/10/31 12:14
So many ads!! I know it helps the company, but there’s so much to were I get out of the game because of them. Don’t get me wrong, I love the game (kinda addicted) but I redownloaded the game the other day, and I don’t remember the game having so much ads. I mean cmon. I get on the app, ad, when I pick a song that I’ve already watched 40 million ads for, ANOTHER AD, and even when I get done playing a song..guess what, ANOTHER AD!!! cmon smule, where’s the game that I enjoyed without getting all these stupid ads. Plus, it’s like the same ads everyday. I’m okay with ads (because every game has them). Buttttt when they interrupt EVERY SINGLE TIME I PLAY, then I’m either gonna delete the game I love, or give y’all a review and hope y’all address and fix the problem. :) Yes, I understand y’all benefit from ads, but surely for how many people play yalls apps, and how many ads y’all have on a game in general, I think y’all are good on money. Please Please PlEaSe fix the PrObLeM!!!!! LOVE AND KIND, LAYTHEN!!! :) P.s- I love the game, and the games y’all produce. But, it’s basically all the stikin ads that I have to deal with just on this game. I hope y’all can fix this. Have a great day! :)
No longer worth my time; TRASH
by Niniroman on 2018/12/08 05:54
I never spend the time to review, however my disappointment in the evolution of this game pushed me to do so. I first played magic piano around 6-7 years ago and I absolutely loved it. There were plenty of accessible songs and I would earn a nice classical piece every time I leveled up. There were plenty of songs to choose from and I did not mind spending hard earned coins to gain popular songs like Mario’s theme song and Beethoven Sonatas. The amount of ads was reasonable and felt like an acceptable exchange for the playtime they provided. Now it is trash. As others have commented, there are ads before and after playing one song (most of the time). You get free songs for leveling up much less frequently and when you do they are not very desirable (I.e very short happy birthday). Even with all that ad watching, there are only 8 free songs, and most songs are for VIP members only. I loved this game for the classical music and there is barely access to any classical pieces for free anymore. I am extremely disappointed with the direction of this company. I do not recommend their products. And hope others will take notice and do the same. I hope they change for the better after seeing the many complaints here.
They just won’t listen.
by CaraH628 on 2019/02/12 17:17
Okay, so I just had a peaceful few days of not having ads after every song, and now they’re back! -_- ugh (This is the review I wrote before) So I have known about this app since I was around 7 or 8 about a year after it came out. I remember back then that there were very few ads, and I just loved playing my favorite songs for hours! Now that has changed. I love the idea of being able to play a piano on your phone, but not when there’s ads after every single song you play. Not to mention that the piano is so quiet compared to the ads that if I have earbuds in, the ad’s music literally kills my ears! The daily challenge scores are most likely chosen randomly based on what I’ve seen, and that’s really disappointing. Also if there’s a long pause in a song, the notes will come down way faster than they’re supposed to (and you’ll lose your point streak if you wait). Oh yeah, and why is almost every song VIP? Why would someone pay $7.99 a week or whatever to play the piano on their phone? So that’s my rant, there’s probably more to complain about that I haven’t thought of.
AD AND BUG/GLITCH INFESTED APP!!
by Alcrex0260 on 2017/11/15 03:31
Used to like the game but maybe if they added an instant replay feature pianist can see where they might have messed up, and also there’s a bug or glitch that makes the songs I purchased with smolda coins via search, the only songs that show up in the “my songs” section is the songs that the app created. It’s really annoying when I can’t play the songs I spent a long time watching ads to get. And also sometimes I sit through a 30-50 second ad and I don’t even get the coins for it, um..... WHATTTTT?!?!?!? I used to really like this game. I played it for hours without any ads and it was fun and enjoyable and all bugs were squashed, but now we have ads around every corner, bug nests everywhere and ads with sexual content, um excuse me but (no offense intended to Smule) who do you think you are?! It’s an app rated 4+ so there should be content that’s appropriate for 4+ aged people. UNACCEPTABLE!! How would you feel, developers of Smule, if your child was playing an app and encounters an ad containing sexual content? I would feel like a bad parent! And if more and more people feel the app makes them feel like bad parents, they’ll delete the app and you’ll loose money! Then what will you do? Just think about that.
Disappointing
by uwu 4 u on 2019/01/13 04:55
Ideally this would be a great app. It was fun for a bit but there is really not that much you can do without spending money. Smoola, their currency, is soooo hard to obtain. There are these achievements you can get but after the first few easy ones you realize that the rest are impossible to get. You have to play more songs to get the achievements that get you smoola, but to be able to play those songs you have to buy them with smoola. Either way you need smoola and the only way to get it is to buy it with real money. There are tons of ads just to play song that last only one or two minutes. Whenever I saved up enough smoola ( a rare occurrence) I was so happy because that means I could get a song. So over the course of the few years that I have had this app, I have been able to buy ONLY FOUR SONGS! (I don't use this app that often, maybe once a week or a bit more). I also wish there was a way to preview the songs before you buy them. For two out of my four purchased songs, I have been disappointed with the way they sound. This app would be so much better if you didn't have to spend so much money to enjoy it.
Great Game... but also some honesty
by lSIRsmokeALOTl on 2018/03/02 20:42
Alright, so I would like to start by stating that I absolutely love this game as a game, but I've come across some shady business practices from Smule considering their billing agreement. I did the one week trial, loved it and then paid for another. I decided I needed to not pay for the subscription for personal finance reasons, so I canceled my VIP membership. Low and behold they charged me for VIP the next week, so I removed PayPal from my payment methods on iTunes. Funny thing is, even after cancelling the subscription and removing PayPal as a payment method they continued to charge me for four more consecutive weeks. I had to claim fraudulent charges through my bank to get the payments to stop. I'm not sure if this was a mistake or shady business practices, but make sure you manually stop the recurring charges through your bank if you want to stop the VIP membership. That is honestly the only reason I gave this game three stars. If not for that singular incident I would definitely have rated it 5 stars. Great game! Love it! But I'm going to be uninstalling it after my experience.
Scam
by Greek American on 2018/07/19 03:07
I used to love this app, but now it’s just disappointing. I opened the app for the first time in about a year yesterday, and all of the thirty something songs I had ever purchased and played were gone. Even a song that I bought last night was gone by this morning. It’s pretty much impossible to get coins without purchasing them with real money, and I wasn’t going to spend that much time watching ads. Another horrible change that I’ve noticed is the increase in ads. A year ago, all of the songs in the free section used to actually be free. But now, you have to watch an ad before playing one. Even if you want to change the difficulty, you have to watch an ad. Ads never used to be apparent in the app unless you watched them for coins, but now they pop up after you play almost any song, even if you have actually purchased it. After reading a lot of reviews, I am positive that everything that is happening to me is not a unique glitch, and is probably a scam put into place by Smule so they can earn more money. Don’t waste your time trying to make good use of this app. It’s not worth it. There are plenty of other much better versions out there.
Time for a change!
by On the second day on 2017/08/10 18:03
I've had Smule for about three years now and have noticed major changes in the downward direction, sometimes I ask myself why do I still play....why because it is fun after you get through the extremely loud commercials. Some commercials can last as long as 30 seconds and they are now using commercials with sexual orientation and I heard the F word this week on a new commercial. I hope Smule doesn't think only adults use this app because I know several minors that use this. Usually you have to listen to two commercials before playing a song which is tiresome. As for the new composers feature I personally do not care for it because all it does is make about 20 songs of the same song and when you finally get a free song it'll give you a duplicated song that you already have, just made by someone else. it takes a long time sometimes to get a free song even when it asks you would you like a free song today?... and then they don't give you one! I will not pay an annual membership to play this game. Smule needs to get it together and make this app fun for everyone.
So. Many. Freaking. Ads.
by LittleNerdyElephant on 2018/01/11 01:03
Ugh, BEFORE and AFTER I play a song, I have to watch an ad. I can’t X out of it, because then I just close out of the app and lose my progress, and end up repeating what I tried and failed to do before. I give it three stars, mainly because it is a great app overall, with fun songs and options, xp points after every song you play that you save to level up, rewards, etc. I think it would be such a better game if there weren’t as many advertisements! Also, almost everything is too pricey. It is hard to get through the game without purchasing something. There are only eight free songs I know of, without being a VIP, and once you complete those, you kinda have to just replay them until you level up and get more smoola to buy a song. I think this game has potential, but please add in more free songs and lower the amount of ads I see, because honestly it is super annoying, and I want to delete it but I would lose all my progress. If you make these simple changes, my star rating will go up, and I guarantee others will too.
The glitch😤
by I❤️EDM on 2018/06/23 19:57
Overall I think this app is fun and I like that there’s a ton of songs to choose from. But I’m writing this review because of one problem in particular I’m having. When I play on the hard level, (using up to four fingers) often for some unknown reason it will keep pausing even though I do NOT hit the pause button. This happens a lot now (sometimes ten times a song...no exaggeration!) Also it’s started to glitch out right into other apps when I’m right in the middle of a song. It’s getting very annoying. Please fix this! (A month later) Something just popped up on my screen on how to make it stop pausing right in the middle so many times of every song. I did it and it worked. Thanks! I’ll bump it up to four stars now. I’d have a better chance of giving it five stars if there weren’t soooo many ads (An ad after every song you play and sometimes you’re required to watch an ad before you can even begin playing a song) and if the songs didn’t cost so much.
This is my favorite game in the whole world
by Wifey290 on 2018/01/13 08:16
This is the best game I have ever played in my life I play it all night an day literally I am obsessed with this game. When I saw it I thought it was going to be boring but I played it and I said to myself don’t judge a book by its cover especially this game.

AWESOMENESS, MOSTLY‼️‼️🎹🎼🎶🎵
by Sookie words and more on 2017/08/18 20:23
Magic Piano is SO fun but also SO too funny‼️‼️I'm reading reviews and SMH!! Many if not most of us are far from Bach or Mozart but Magic Piano gives us an opportunity to at least feel like we can actually play a piano!! Realistically, though, NOT!! Now I hear ya about these darn, often occurring, loud ads, they are quite troublesome but at least you can get smules but 1 is not equal to each ad in my opinion. Now granted I love it when I play a song and people in the same room can recognize and identify the song I'm actually trying to play!! I did learn much from reading the reviews in regards to options within the app. such as you can practice, pause, play songs people like us have composed vs. actual composers and so on so I think I can enjoy the experience even better. It's always a plus and boost to the old ego when you play well enough to to unlock more songs and level up!! Thumbs up for me👍🏼👌🏽😜👏🏼👏🏼🎹🎧🎤
Im so bitter
by Ɩıŋɖʂɛყ on 2018/08/02 04:03
I’m so incredibly disappointed in this app. I used to have it a long time ago and I loved it SO MUCH. it was so soothing and I would play it every night before I went to sleep. But that was on my old iPad, and now it’s incompatible with the app. I had never played it with my phone cause I thought the screen would be too play to play properly (I was right), so I never got it. Then I saw an ad for it and I thought “that would be fun to try again!” WRONG. I’m so mad. The first thing it’s greets me with is “you wanna but a membership that’s way overpriced?”. Then after that I tried to play a song and was bombarded with SO MANY ADS!! Also, I tried to play a song from the little mermaid that had the voice along with it, and it WAS NOT synced up at all!! I used to play the ones with the voice all the time, so I know how it works. I wasn’t doing it wrong. When did this app become such a sell out?!? Literally like 3/4th of the app is all ads. It’s completely ridiculous. I’m so disappointed and frustrated. I just wanted that soothing experience again. Listen Smule, you don’t need all this crap to sell your app. You’re just making people mad. Please give up back what we want.
Glitchy and too many ads
by luka / ルーカ on 2018/06/13 03:05
I’m not too sure if this has happened to anybody, but I’ve recently been going into the app only to find that the songs I’ve purchased are not appearing. Typically, the “My Songs” tab only showed the songs you’ve earned when you’ve leveled up, and took a few seconds to show the songs you’ve bought. Now the songs I’ve bought don’t show up at all, and if I want to play a certain song I have to look it up. Super annoying since I have the tendency to scroll and pass something I want to play without thinking about it first. On the other hand, the ads are just too much. After almost every song I play that has a difficulty (not going into the section where it says “Practice) an ad pops up. Having the ads when you are trying to earn Smoola without playing a song makes sense, but having it after every song played is just flat out tedious. Aside from the glitches and ads, the app is pretty fun to play around with. If it didn’t have these problems, I’d probably be on it more often, but the app is slowly being ruined for me.
Helpful ideas!!!!
by JHONOSAURUS REX on 2018/05/16 01:29
I think that this is a very fun and creative app, but only when people stop copying the same song from each other. The sad thing is that they aren’t even the right song. For example, I wanted to play the song “Every time we Touch” by cascada and when I search it up, I see that all of the songs say cascada on them. But when I listen to them, they aren’t even remotely close to the actual song. I would love it if you could add something to prevent that since it is very annoying. Aside from that, I think it would be a good idea for you to add a function that allows you to transpose songs that you have downloaded on iTunes for the piano. So basically, if I have a song on iTunes that isn’t on the app, I could select the function and it would transpose itself to match the app. I think that it would be a good idea, and I think that it will make the app more enjoyable. Overall, it is a very fun app and I would like to see more happen with it. Thank you!
Fun, but...
by cheese1342🧀🧀🧀🧀 on 2018/05/09 03:26
I love the app and all, but I have some suggestions. First of all, for the sing jams thing, could you make an option for it, the option being not having to hit the exact note thing. Second, for the composer option, can you make it easy to figure out how to change the timing so the song you made doesn't go really slow? It frustrates me because other people's songs are the right tempo, but my songs never are. Third, when your searching for a song, could you make an option for only songs composed by smule show up? Sometimes, I don't want other people's songs because they can be wrong. Sometimes I want the actual correct version, if of course, smule made the song. That's it for now, so please make the changes. Other than that stuff, it's a great app. Oh, and one more thing, there are too many adds. And they come up too often. If you ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO HAVE ADDS, please make them different. I'm so sick of seeing your karaoke app's add. It just makes me not want to play this game or get the karaoke app.
Too many Ads now! Poor song selection
by Ashlish on 2017/10/16 04:12
I'm finally irritated enough to write this review. This use to be my favorite app, hands down. So fun and included challenges and current music. However, now there are so many ad disruptions. Playing a new tune, first an ad....playing a song you have already paid for, first an ad.... playing a free song made by another user, first an ad. It's ridiculous. Now, I barely play it, unless I have time and patience to sit through five ads in less than ten minutes. Total sell out move, btw Smule. I wouldn't mind buying it, but a monthly fee is charged with an auto subscription, or you have to sign up for a slippery trial offer. Not a good deal. Also, there use to be new songs made by Smule that were free. Now, it's the same songs over and over made by different users-Chasing Cars, Gravity Falls Theme, Hokage's Death, Hallelujah, What a Wonderful World.....seriously! It's been those songs for at least a year now. Change it up a bit and I don't mean different Smule user composers. That comes off pretty cheap and makes me wonder what I would get from allowing you to charge my card every month if I signed up.
There are things that need to be improved
by MinecraftMermaids👍 on 2018/11/25 20:54
I really do like the game a lot, which may seem weird considering my 3-star rating. It’s just there are a few things about this game that make it less enjoyable. One: how hard it is to make Smoola. Honestly I’ve just given up on leveling entirely because I’m only getting 1 smoola every time I level up! You may say that you’re making up for it by giving us songs when we level up instead of Smoola, but I’m sorry, not all of us WANT to play classic songs. It was much better when you got 25 Smoola for leveling up, because it felt more rewarding and we could actually get the songs we want. Two: WAYYYYYY too many ads. I don’t want to see an ad every time I finish playing a song. I’ve actually had to find ways to avoid getting the ads just so I don’t have to watch them, but then I don’t get the XP for the song I just played. Maybe you should just leave the ads in the get more Smoola area. Three (and this is the biggest one in my opinion): The fact that it pauses any time I press the screen with four fingers. Ok, it makes sense that the pause screen would be sensitive if I push hard on the screen, but it’s doing it almost every single time I use four fingers, making it almost IMPOSSIBLE to play certain songs and enjoy them because it’s pausing every two seconds. Maybe you should make it so that the pause screen isn’t so sensitive to touch and there’s just an actual button to pause it, because this is getting really annoying.
It is okay, BUT could be better!!!
by Twinkies5everrr on 2018/02/16 05:58
I believe that Magic Piano is a good app. It is fun and creative.., and I really like the fact that people have the opportunity to compose songs ^-^... however, there are some huge problems about this app -.-... To begin with, there are SERIOUSLY WAYYYYY too many advertisements. (No exaggeration) There is an ad EVERY single time I finish a song. Also, when I select a free song (Or even one of mY songs!¡!) to play, an ad/video pops up. I think this is very annoying and makes me a lottt less interested to play the game. Another problem is that since a lot of the songs are not free, it is really hard to buy songs when you barely have any smoolas. It is so hard to get smoolas because (i don't know if this is just me) every time i complete those free offers to get smoolas, it NEVER works. Back in the olden days where the compose magic piano update was long gone, the offers would actually work and reward me... Magic Piano was not that bad a while ago, but now, its progress is going downhill :(
Not Sure What to Think
by BlitzyWolf on 2019/01/21 02:29
I grew up playing this and thought it was amazing. However, after deleting it after a few years and deciding to revisit a childhood memory...it most certainly disappointed me. The constant ads drive me insane whenever I play various songs of a relatively short duration. Not only that, but being able to afford the songs I wish to play is just depressing to look at without the means of spending money. Although I understand there must be ads and a reason to become a VIP to earn money, I don’t see a purpose strong enough to convince me to spend a penny on this app. On a different note, I’ve played this on my iPad and have found it exceedingly frustrating to attempt playing songs on a hard difficulty due to the four finger taps available during them, because it pauses the song and brings up a menu from the bottom about half of the times I try to play the four finger notes. I’m unsure why a pausing mechanic like that was implemented into the game due to inconvenience and how unnecessary it is. So, I highly doubt that I will return to using this app unless some of its serious issues are properly addressed.
It’s great but more
by kelly old mellie on 2018/07/23 05:50
I love this app you can play really good songs and especially I love how you put Beethoven songs I love playing them every day I love listening to music it just is pretty easy but I like it the only thing is I hate when you have to watch an ad before you play one of your favorite songs please just get rid of this these ads because like I’m starting to hate this app but I really love it and I love just like everything and it’s really nice how you put every song but and I don’t like how you have to cost coins for it and I just wanted to be like you know how on karaoke you can choose whatever song you want by now on this you don’t choose like what song you want and I want to choose whatever song I want to play but I can’t because I’m trying to practice on my 🎹 even though I love it and the only thing is just get rid of all the ads😘😛😠 all at the same time
Used to be great
by Pyrowo1f on 2018/03/20 20:53
This app used to be a lot of fun. I used to play it every day. Since then, I moved on, but I remembered the app and came back. It’s taken a turn for the worst now. You used to have an ad-free experience even as a free user. You could still watch ads to get the in-app currency, Smoola, so you could buy songs. I did this almost religiously day by day. You can still do this, too. However, now you also get an ad after every. Single. Song. And that’s assuming you own the song. If you don’t, you’ll need to watch an ad before you play the song, too. The composer feature is incredible, and the user created songs are wonderful. The fact that they only cost 25 Smoola a piece is awesome. The ability to share your performances with friends, family, and the world (through the in-app “World” feature and the Smule website) is cool, too. But the entire experience is completely ruined by the prevalence and disruptiveness of the endless ads. Unless, of course, you pay the subscription fee on a monthly, three month, or annual basis.
It’s great!!! But...
by Heggru on 2018/09/03 22:51
This is by far my favorite app of all time! But... it’s got a one thing that isn’t so great. when ever I try to watch an video to get more smoola, it lets me watch it but then doesn’t give me the smoola and I’ve tried over and over again but it still won’t work!!! And when ever I get free songs it says that I need to pay for them even after it lets me play them!!! And sooooo many of my favorite songs need VIP access and I don’t have the money for something a stupid as a couple of songs on an app!!! But I still love this app even when it kills me off of it repeatedly and sometimes forces me to delete it along with all the songs I’ve payed for!!! And don’t even get me stated on the freaking billions of ads!!!! They suckkkkk!!! And almost every time I mess up it either doesn’t say anything or says something completely different then what I did and I know what I did but it’s kinda annoying to have it not tell me.
This app has gone downhill.
by Pinapplesonpizza on 2018/08/21 06:09
I used to thoroughly enjoy this app, but it has become consistently worse as time has gone on. There used to be occasional ads, which are understandable, as you do have to make money, but now there are ads before and after almost every song. In similar fashion, you used to be able to play your songs offline, however now, to foster more advertising, no doubt, you must be online to play. Songs you purchase also have developed a nasty tendency of disappearing from one’s list of songs, and are still playable without purchase if you search for them, however this is annoying when you just wish to scroll through yours songs and play one, and it disappeared without your knowing. There was a time I’d have rated this app 5 stars, but due to increasing problems that add up, I’m giving it 2. I’m going to keep it downloaded in case updates fix any of these problems, but for now I’m going to stop playing, so they don’t get advertising money that I don’t think they deserve off of me.
Some magic in magic piano smule
by sophieshopkins😊 on 2018/06/24 01:49
I used to not like this game at all. I was thinking about deleting the app last time I played, but when I played it again, some things changed. There is actually some songs I like that are free, but ads. When you click on a song to play, it says your free content will be available after this ad, and it’s really annoying. I’ve gotten used to it, but I feel like they should get rid of that. Tons of people are tired of ads on games, and maybe magic piano smule can get rid of the ads on this game. That would totally bring back a lot of people. I 85% of me thought it was a good idea to delete this app, but I’m lowering it to a 40% now because I’m kinda impressed. Also, it’s kind of cool how there’s a ton of options other than ads to get free smoola. And I like that it’s only 25 smoola for songs I like instead of like 50. But on the other hand, you don’t get much smoola at all when you level up. They should give you 5 smoola, not like two! I’ll give it one more stars than I did before.
AWESOME! Get it! its worth it!

Okay so i have probably had this app for like three years or something and i just recently came back to it and fell in love with it. and theres all these bad reviews like “ Oh theres too many adds” or “They all cost coins to get them!” Witch is bull because all games have adds try to think of one game on you're phone or iPad right now that doesn't have adds? Yeah you couldn't think of any could you. and its not like theres That many either. and for the people who say “oh well most of the songs cost coins!” Seriously? Theres a get more coins section and all you have to do is watch an add and u get enough coins for you're new song there. all i'm trying to say is this a great app and anyone who is thinking about getting it get it! because theres no hurt in giving it a try and if u don't like it then just delete it.
This is not fair

Ok so my 6 year old brother had my phone and he knows everything about it so he added his finger print to the phone and I had the Touch ID for my Apple ID and I found out I was getting these charges I didn’t know what they were at first but then I checked it out and saw charges from magic piano I haven’t even played this game in like 2 months so when I saw I got charges I thought that it was a mistake but I called my card and they told me that about a month ago I applied for a subscription on the app magic piano like I said I haven’t played this game I’m forever the only person that played it was my little brother and since he had my finger print he purchased the subscription and no one knew he might’ve thought it was free because when the purchase screen shows up it says free trial key word free so my brother saw that and pressed the button he saw the fingerprint sign and but his finger this is not fair at all we didn’t even know we were being charged and we weren’t even playing the game this is really unfair and I will never download this game again
It's okay, but...
by D.Mattle on 2017/11/20 21:10
It's a little frustrating when you level up you're rewarded with a song you have already gotten for free. Also, the daily free songs just repeat over and over rarely giving you something you don't already have. One more thing I don't like is that most of the really good songs are only available with a "monthly subscription". That's it, everything else is good. 3 stars Update: I've been playing this game since 2011. It's always had its quirks that made it a pain in one way or another. The last year or so it has gotten so forceful with advertising that it's not even fun anymore. I very rarely play it anymore. Usually if I'm waiting in the car while the wife is shopping or something. There is an ad before and after every song. You can't close it without closing the game. Ridiculous to have to watch a 30 second ad to get your points, so you can watch another ad before you play the same song again at a different difficulty then another ad to get your stars. So I'm taking my previous stars back. Much to greedy anymore.
Good for fun, but not really for a wallet.
by ILuvHetalia on 2018/10/03 02:23
I wanted to use the free trial for a little bit, just to play some of the songs I liked. Well, it reactivated the trial somehow after I cancelled it. I didn’t do anything to reactivate it. And it didn’t even tell me. So, now I’m out $25 cause of it. You guys need to at least say it when you charge for the subscription cause I had no clue it was happening. I don’t have a job of my own, and I was using a credit card my parent opened for me. I hope you guys read this and figure out a way to fix this issue so people know when they’re gonna be charged. Or, instead of telling the, after they’re charged, tell them a few days before so they can cancel if need be. Not only that, but I can’t even access songs I was able to play with the VIP subscription after they were in my songbook. Why not just remove them from the song book rather than taunt players who cancelled their subscription with songs they played. You guys have gone downhill over the years...
What happened?
by OMGitswolfie on 2017/12/23 02:43
What in the world happened to this game?! I'm just a kid and i used to love this game when I was really young where I could play any song and didn't have to pay for any! What happened to that? You guys seem more greedy for money and we need a freaking VIP membership to get songs that is really popular?? WHAT?! Membership costs like 100 bucks! And what's with all the adds?? Everytime I just finish a song an add comes up and most of them are apps I already have! Some adds have sexual content which I shouldn't be seeing! I really enjoy this app but the songs that I love are like 75 coins now! Now I have to copy it and change a note just so I could play it! What's up with all of that stuff?! If the adds get away or the VIP is more cheap like 10 bucks or something more people would buy it instead of making it 100 bucks people wouldn't buy it so expensive! Too many adds are occuring! I give this a 3 stars.
Not much fun anymore!

I have been using this app for over 5 years. I loved it and was addicted. I loved challenging myself to play the easy level perfect, then medium, then hard. If I messed up, I restarted. Many songs were quite challenging. I loved it until level 100; the highest you can go. It’s like the developers of the app gave up. No more achievements to earn, no coins for leveling up and no new instruments. How disappointing!! I played this app every day. It was fun, challenging, and relaxing. I agree the VIP members only should be removed. I also would pay a small fee to remove the horrendous amount of ads that I am forced to endure. It was never like that when I started. And I had an issue a year or so back where I had to uninstall and reinstall the app. Lost all my progress. Songs were there but no stars. Like starting all over again. I was upset. So, where once I would have given it 5 stars, I gave 3. I was debating if I should give it a 2. And I forgot to mention the daily challenge of which I never got into the top 50. How did all of us, get an average score of around 1,212 points while 1 person got 2,065. Impossible, and it happened many times. If the developers put better changes in an update and make the app similar to what it used to be, I would give them 5 stars again. I am an older person and I’m disappointed in this app.
This app is horrible.
by Jammapanda on 2017/07/08 03:05
Let me start with the fact that you only earn one smoola every time you level up, which every song costs 25 to 75 smoola so that is very ridiculous also taking into account that to get more than around 30 XP, you have to play a new song. Next the game will tell you that your finger is "too far right" or "too far left" when your finger is exactly on the note which brings down points. The songs are mostly a bunch of crap and if you buy a song that isn't what it says it was you can't return it, no you're stuck with a worthless song. Also let me mention, there is an ad after EVERY SINGLE SONG YOU PLAY. I have the patience to sit through an ad every two to three songs but after every single song? It's ridiculous. You have to pay an $8 a week membership just to play certain songs or not have to use smoola to unlock songs which is absurd. Maybe $8 a month but not a week. A month would be around $32 so a year would be around $500. Wow. This is a horrible app.
This app makes my life much better....

I’ve played songs on Magic Piano for five years. I’m sorry to see so many complaints in the reviews. I guess they are dissatisfied with the game element. I just play the song book as I have a subscription yearly. It is dang little money to pay for the hours of pleasure it affords me. I’m 78 years old and there is hardly a day goes by that I don’t have my Smule fix. I have mastered over 400 songs pretty much sticking to the traditional, musical theatre, and classical ones. I like to see my scores even though I can’t usually better my highest scores probably posted years ago. My old fingers are not as flexible as they used to be. I love the concerts I play for myself and get great satisfaction in playing my favorites over and over. Use my iPad Pro and love Magic piano. ❤️❤️
Normies only; not for music enthusiasts
by Darren is epic435 on 2018/03/08 01:47
If you are a hip, cool young adult female, you would love this. For a serious musician or even someone starting in music, this is not for you. Most songs available are from smule, and put to the top of every list. All of the songs are dumb pop numbers that never captured the depth of said pop numbers even if the originals were still shallow. Almost every song put out by them is easy to play and sounds vaguely like the original. As for the composer feature, its stupid. There are only 2 time signatures available, 4/4 and 3/4, meaning no waltz in 6/8 or oddities in 5/4. The system is for beginners who don’t know how to read sheet music which is fine, except this is the ONLY way to write songs, which makes songwriting here TEDIOUS. Also, once you post your song, the only way for it to be seen is if someone searches one of your tags or titles. Meaning all of smule’s crappy songs are on top. They also have a weird fetish for chasing cars.
To the ruthless complainers
by Jane Spindly on 2017/11/11 02:33
For those who complain about ads, go read a book. They're just a few seconds long, and you can close them easily. If it gives you crashes I'm sorry, but just do what I do: play the entire song except for the last note. Then you can go and play a different one. Yes, that blocks off your experience, but you can just get one of the easy XP 1000+ songs and be rich. And for those who say all the good songs are VIP, go read two books. You do not deserve the pleasure of hearing the masterpieces of Disney orchestras. Musicals have fantastic music too, so please stop complaining about your cool teenage rap songs being unavailable. This is the only app you'll ever need, if you can't see that then you obviously don't recognize how much of a blessing it is.
Garbage
by TheGantos119 on 2017/12/28 19:21
I used to like this app. But now it’s just a cheap excuse for money. There’s too many ads. You have to watch an ad or else you won’t get any score for playing a song. You can’t play offline either, or else it won’t show your songs. You know why? Because ads have to have internet to work. I’m not doing a monthly subscription for smule points either. It’s just a piano app. It’s not like Xbox Live or PlayStation+ where it makes sense to have a monthly subscription. Because with those, you have more than just one game. Not just one where you tap the screen. I just don’t see the point in that. I’m sick of the video ads too. You’re forced to watch one once you finish a song and it gets annoying and repetitive very quickly. Not to mention you have to watch them if you want to get more songs. Or, you could subscribe to smule. Again, I don’t see why anyone would want to do this. If this game was fair and not such an obvious excuse to make a few dollars, I wouldn’t have a problem with it.
Pretty awesome!
by Okay👍🏼 on 2017/06/30 22:27
This game is so addicting and fun, it's cool that other players can make their own songs and compose actual real songs too!👍😁 But most the time they get the song wrong and don't do it right and mess up the song they are actually trying to make...but it's ok. Some songs people compose are actually very good👍. Also, it makes a bigger song selection.😀It is really hard to get money though, you have to watch a 20 sec. ad to get at least 5 smoola (money). Ads are really sooo annoying!😒😔 Recently there has been an ad every time I play a song (Finish a song). Pretty annoying! Problems: - Too many ads - Someone should check bad, incorrect, or songs that aren't really...songs... Overall, this game is so simple, yet challenging...which makes it so fun! 😀
Steals your smoola
by iraz12345 on 2018/06/13 20:14
So I’ve always loved this app and had it on my devices since 2015, always loved it. Now here’s where it gets annoying. There are times when I would search up a song and try and purchase it with smoola. I looked up the song “suteki Dane” by final fantasy and had 29 in smoola. The price for the song was 25 so I was like okay, I can afford this. I clicked the icon with the 25 smoola on it and it started loading saying “preparing your song” and then out of nowhere it said “something went wrong” so in my head I was like, OK. I’ll just wait a bit then open up my songs cause I already bought it. I opened up the app again and it still had that purchase next to the song so I clicked on it again and it said I don’t have enough smoola so I was like oh I think it might have been in my song book already. But no! I went to my song book and it wasn’t even there and smule charged me 25 smoola and now I’m left with 4 smoola on my account. And I didn’t even get the song I wanted to buy. 🤷🏾‍♀️
Ads are too annoying-full version too costly
by csf97 on 2018/04/23 00:02
I don’t mind an ad every so often, but it has gotten to where you have to view an ad to play a song, view an ad as soon as you hit continue after finishing the song and then view an ad again as soon as you select the next song. I will never buy Adventure Capitalist no matter how many times you show me that super annoying ad. I would love to play it to relax and get rid of stress, but the constant ads cause stress instead of relieving it. I would buy this game in a heartbeat if it was $19 or less as a one time purchase, but the monthly subscription is ridiculously priced. Also, I don’t know if it is my new iPad Generation 6 or the latest iOS update but it is incorrectly penalizing for “too many fingers” the last day or so, especially when it’s a 4 finger note. Please, Smule, reconsider the number of ads or your pricing method and fix the recent incorrect “too many fingers” error.
Used to be great, but...
by Random Gaming Person on 2018/01/24 04:08
I used to LOOVE this game, and frankly, I still should. My problems with this game have nothing to do with actual gameplay, but with the company itself. I have just a couple points to make, and honestly, they’re easily fixable, and should’ve never happened in the first place. 1. You have to pay for EVERYTHING I’d say there are about 3 songs I actually WANT to play in the free section. My favorite songs are always VIP. For 25 smula you can get songs from the 60-90s. With 50 smula you can get old, badly composed, easy modern songs. With 75, you can get more popular songs, (e.g. the stranger things theme) but so far I’ve seen one song connected to the Sing! Karaoke app that wasn’t VIP. Smula are INCREDIBLY hard to get, earning a few when you level up, sometimes you can get even less after playing a song, and you can watch videos for FIVE SMULA EACH. I’ve also had a problem with this where I had to watch two videos before I got any smula. 2. ADS. ADS EVERYWHERE. Every single time I complete a song I get an ad. Before most “free” songs, there’s an ad too. Sometimes, I’ll just get an ad randomly. My conclusion is you really have to pay to move forward in the game. This game is a complete and total cash grab. I’ve had it on and off over the past 4 years, deleting it every time solely because there are too many ads and too little options. Yes, this game is fun, but everything else is a complete and utter mess.
